This month, nearly 20 new restaurants, bars and cafés opened in Berkeley, Oakland, Albany and Alameda.
Find out the latest food news, updates and events happening in the East Bay.
The Fifth Quarter Charcuterie has landed a brick-and-mortar location in Oakland, Berkeley looks like it'll get a Taco Bell Cantina, and much more East Bay food news in this week's Bites.
Scott Brennan, former head butcher at Berkeley’s Café Rouge, is to debut his new charcuterie shop, The Fifth Quarter, at Kensington Farmers’ Market on July 24.
Until two months ago, Scott Brennan was running Café Rouge‘s highly regarded meat market on Fourth Street — butchering whole pigs, whipping up foie gras and head cheeses and holding Monday night classes aimed at demystifying the topography of a goat carcass.
