1015 Clay is open at 1015 Clay Street in Old Oakland.
Here's the skinny: They are opening it in phases, towards the goal of an all-day schedule. So far, breakfast and lunch are great. Friday happy hours are going, but haven't stopped by yet. Once they finish phasing in their full menu and hours, they will change the name.
Brunch is forthcoming, and dinner is forthcoming.
This is run by the same guys as Chop Bar in Jack London Square. I consider Chop Bar to have the best brunch near my neighborhood, Old Oakland. 1015's breakfast sandwiches were awesome. I went with some friends, and we each got one of everything. It was all delicious.
I only have one criticism: I'm almost never a fan of coleslaw, pasta salad, or deli-style potato salad, which leaves me with $2 french fries as a side option with the lunch items.
The Old Town Bratwürst looks killer, but alas they don't cook it in beer.
If you haven't tried it, it borders the Oakland City Center, which means it's a super brief walk from the 12th St / City Center BART. If you get off on 11th, you just walk past the convention center and you're there.
