ALL THE FIXINGS You can get “the Kitchen Sink” at The Toaster Oven, a sandwich shop that just opened at 2309 Telegraph Avenue, right by Cal (as tipped by Shop Talk in November). It’s better than it sounds, since it is a sandwich with all the toppings — roast beef, turkey, ham, salami, and cheese. And, like most sandwiches from the five-outlet chain, it only costs $4.99.
The decades-old retail and food quotas in Berkeley’s Elmwood commercial district face a potentially dramatic overhaul with Councilmember Gordon Wozniak set to propose a review of the quotas to the Planning Commission at tonight’s City Council meeting.

Truth in advertising: it’s a simple concept that for some reason seems extremely hard to put into practice. Case in point: the tobacco industry, which spent decades trying to convince people that cancer sticks were good for you.
