Anyone else getting tired of "new" Craft Beer,Gourmet Burgers & 3rd Wave Coffee joints in Bay Area?

Yes...but the same thing could be said for allowing unlimited corporate fast food chains into Oakland.

"if these new businesses attract patrons, so be it."

KronnerBurger - Oakland

Yes, I was the first to write and review Clove and Hoof here.


Kagoshima Wagju chuck roll at Nijiya

Is that the Nijiya in Union City?

Junior's "BBQ" ( burger )

What city is this in?

KronnerBurger - Oakland

Well I hope that "designer" never gets the job of remodeling the Julia Morgan building down the street where AG Ferrari deli is located.


KronnerBurger - Oakland

What is up with all that inappropriate uninviting harsh and cold tile work?
It felt like I was up the street at the cemetery in a mausoleum.

This could be the creepiest food place remodel since Fournee Bakery's on Domingo St. in Berkeley.


Is that really a Obelisk...wtf?

The last pic should titled..."please tag this building"

Painting all that natural brick on the exterior white had to be a violation of Oakland's design review.

Here is a before photo...


here is one after...

14 oz "pints" of beer...epic fail!

KronnerBurger - Oakland

Well now I am intrigued...did you get any negative vibe from the place or the employees?

The best burger around is cooked in my backyard with meat from Café Rouge,buns from Acme, tomatoes from my garden, real Swiss Emmentaler Cheese and onions and Romaine lettuce from Star Grocery.

Don't forget the Bestfoods® Mayo and a tasty mustard of your own choosing!

A freshly opened jar of Maille dijon is #1 in my burger book.

KronnerBurger - Oakland

I went in the other day to check them out and have a meal with my brother.

We got a creepy pompous and arrogant "vibe" and "tude" from the burger joint and staff.

We sat, looked at the menu and said "C-YA don't want to be ya"

Went down the street and had a great meal at some new Mediterranean place.
(no not Simply Greek)

I will report back on its name and the food.

Franklin BBQ pop up mid-May?

His brisket is just salt,pepper and 100% oak for smoking...and very proper technique.

I wonder if he will source the meat locally?

I say everyone with a smoker should cook a brisket that weekend and share with friends.

Will service improve,stay the same or deteriorate with "no tipping" policies?

Michael Bauer says no to tips.


Franklin BBQ pop up mid-May?

Franklin BBQ seems to be all about the Money!

Making money is fine...gouging is not IMHO.

I was going to order a T shirt for my friend when I saw they wanted to charge $11.65 shipping on one of their logo shirts.

I just shipped a XL T shirt to a friend in Chicago last week...cost $2.80 first class USPS.

I copied this from their order page because I thought it so unreasonable.

Size: x large
Category: Apparel

1 $20.00
Shipping/Handling: $11.65
Order Total: $31.65

Another Clove and Hoof thread.

Will non-tipped waitpersons still care about selling drinks,appetizers and desserts or turning tables?

The financial incentive is now gone.

Will service improve,stay the same or deteriorate with "no tipping" policies?

Will Waitpersons end up making more or less money?

Mo's Hut, Oakland

Cornology (Popcorn shop) now open in SF North Beach, Livermore, Emeryville, Milpitas

I happened to drive buy Peter's Kettle Corn on the way to Everett and Jones BBQ last week.(both in the Laural district in Oakland)

Nice looking store.
And I must say many of their flavors sounded great!
And I don't even like popcorn that much.


Best Sandwich in Berkeley?

Some posters think listing cities and locations is a waste of time because you can just use "google"

I don't agree.

Chowdown at Grocery Cafe, Oakland [Burmese]

What did this special meal cost?

Noble Pies, thistle pie

I loved their Aussie meat pie too.
That and their simple salad was a great lunch.

I think it even came with a little dab of chutney?

SF Millennium vegan coming to Oakland's Rockridge

Moving into Box and Bells space.


Grange Hall in Oakland's Temescal (old Barlata space)

$2 Miller and PBR beers...I wonder how long that will last?

Grange Hall: 4901 Telegraph Ave., (510) 593-2376,


Has anyone tried the food?

2 Days in Berkeley

Do people still go to Vik's Chaat?


That place has not been good since 2002...imho.

Moving to North/East Bay

Albany is nice...unfortunately the only freeway into Albany is I-80 which is one of the most congested in the entire Bay Area.

Great place if you work at home and don't have to leave your neighborhood much.

Kensington is even nicer...but even worse if you need to go anywhere out of the area.

I had a rental property there a few years back and it would take 35 minutes to get to Home Depot in Emeryville in non rush hour traffic.

I can get to the same store in less than 10 minutes from my Rockridge home.

Grocery Outlet - March 2015

20% off all wine sale starts today till April 4th.

Moving to North/East Bay

Lamorinda is very "quiet"...but also has virtually no crime and good schools.

And you are just a short easy drive from hundreds of great dining places in Oakland and Berkeley.

BART stations in both Orinda and Lafayette.

Way better "in an out" than many parts of Marin.

"In and out" as a realty term,not the hamburger place.
