Rudy's Can't Fail Cafe opened the doors to its Oakland location on Monday, to much fan fare from the San Francisco bloggers who probably havent even been to the Emeryville location. They all bring up a good point though, which is how awesome it would be to score the transformed train car dining area, which seats 10 and has VIP access to the Fox. I have a simpler goal, which is just leaving enough room for a damn Guinness milkshake. They'll be open everyday from 7-1am.

And some weirdly mysterious restaurant tentatively named 1015 Clay has opened in Old Oakland (same address as the name). The owner is Jesse Branstetter, former chef over at Chop Bar. Or is he former? According to EBX, Branstetter has ended his relationship with Chop Bar but is still a part of the team? I get it, breakups are hard, but get it together man. He labels the restaurant as "eclectic California cuisine" and early reports over at Chowhound are favorable. Peep some menu items here.
