Mid-Week Menu: A16 and A90 on the Way, and Kermit Lynch Turns Forty

Welcome to the Mid-Week Menu, our weekly roundup of East Bay food news.

1) Big news in Rockridge: Inside Scoop reports that San Francisco’s A16 will open a second location early next year in the space currently occupied by Hudson (5356 College Ave.). Rocky Maselli, who’s cooked mostly in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, will be the executive chef. The restaurant’s original Marina location is probably most well known for its Neapolitan pizza; co-owner Shelley Lindgren notes that the Oakland location will have a bit more of a seafood focus because of Maselli’s family ties to Puglia (the heel of Italy’s boot, as they say). Between this news, James Syhabout’s upcoming project at the former Somerset location, and the Chez Panisse-pedigreed Ramen Shop — well, that’s a lot of firepower coming to tony Rockridge.
