Mid-Week Menu: East End Pizza 2.0, Father’s Day Options, and the Ice Cream Rumor Mill

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

1) The ice cream gossip mill is in full swing, with a couple of Bay Area favorites rumored to be adding locations in the East Bay. Tablehopper was the first to report the rumor that Smitten, the liquid-nitrogen-based ice cream shop in San Francisco, might be adding a location in Rockridge. Diablo Dish got confirmation from the owners and, after some sleuthing, found out the potential location: Looks like the owners are trying to get a conditional use permit to take over the former Great Harvest Bread Co. location (5800 College Ave.). An additional piece of ice cream gossip, also courtesy of Diablo Dish: The owners of recently reopened Berkeley soft-serve fave Sketch (2080 4th St.) are looking into adding a second location in the East Bay.
