Looking through a restaurant list someone sent me (http://meetdowntownoak.com/listing.ph...), I saw a couple of restaurants I had never heard of. Two were simply way beyond my dining radius (4th and Alice is a long ways for me). But one purports to be coming to Old Oakland:
Small-plate regional Mexican food. Opening soon.
468 8th St
Daily Lunch & Dinner
I didn't see a sign when I was last in that area, but they do have a job posting for waiters/waitresses that gives some more details: "...with a passion for Mexican cuisine. Wine knowledge and high end restaurant service a plus..."
