Berlyn's Gourmet Eatery, a new restaurant from owner Larry McClendon and Best Of S.F. winner Dontaye Ball of Good Foods Catering, is expected to debut in Oakland at the end of April. Ball says it'll be open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with daily changing specials and a set menu that includes panini, cold sandwiches, and salads, with soul food offerings (gumbo, jambalaya) and vegan options. The focus will be on food to go, but there'll be a counter for standing and a few outdoor seats. It should prove to be a good option for Lake Merritt picnicking, as long as you can handle the possibility of hungry geese.

Opening Apr. 23:

Berlyn's Gourmet Eatery: 132 International (at First Ave.), Oakland.

    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
