Mid-Week Menu: C.R.E.A.M. Considers Franchising, Juhu Beach Club Comes to Oakland, and Triple Rock Brewery Plans Full-Service Restaurant

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

1) Eater SF has a brief update on downtown Oakland’s Tribune Tavern (409 13th St.), the much-buzzed-about collaboration between Chop Bar co-owner Chris Pastena and Grand Tavern’s Temoor Noor: A website has been unveiled, as has the restaurant’s logo and overall brand identity (designed by Oaklandish). Located on the first floor of the Tribune Building, the restaurant — sure to be a popular business lunch spot — is slated to open by the end of March.

2) After some low-key soft-opening action and a brief construction delay, the Chez Panisse alums behind Ramen Shop (5812 College Ave.) have set their official opening date to this Friday, January 4, according to Eater SF. Suffice it to say that East Bay Japanophiles and noodle enthusiasts — heretofore starved for quality ramen options — are ready to get their slurp on.
