another restaurant has opened

The Tribune Tavern is in the old Tribune Tower, former home of the local newspaper.  It is one of many new restaurants that have opened up in the downtown and Uptown areas.  Oakland has become quite the restaurant scene, with even San Francisco chefs coming across the Bay to open a new venture.  I like that in good weather, the windows slide back and voila! you're dining al fresco.


  1. Ha! What else is new. These openings seem like ants at times. Two open; one closes. The life of foodies.

  2. What I like about this one is that it is open to the outside. More and more inside places are becoming difficult for me to take part in a conversation with the cacophony of noise reverberating off the walls. Oh the joy of diminishing hearing abilities - tinnitus.

  3. We've got plenty of restaurants here... perhaps too many in certain areas. The problem is that if you convert a retail or office space into a restaurant and that doesn't work out, it's hard to convert back.

  4. I just hope Oakland doesn't lose it's "real working people" vibe!
