Mid-Week Menu: Oysters and Caribbean Food Come to Swan’s Market, the Krikorians Sell Sea Salt, and Le Rose Bistro Moves to Concord

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

1) Looks like Miss Ollie’s (901 Washington St.) is finally almost ready to open up shop at Swan’s Market in Old Oakland. Eater has a preview based on recent updates to the Caribbean restaurant’s Facebook page, where chef-owner Sarah Kirnon has been documenting her progress: vintage enamel dinner plates procured, tabletops and Wolf range installed, floor polished, etc. The working menu includes fried chicken (on Tuesdays), curried goat (on Wednesdays), cou cou (a cornmeal porridge and the national dish of Barbados) with steamed fish and spicy tomato broth, and crispy aubergine with tamarind sauce.
