Mid-Week Menu: Victory Burger, Nick’s Pizza, and a Couple of Restaurant Remodels

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

1) As reported previously, Actual Cafe owner (and weekend laptop policy enforcer) Sal Bednarz is opening an artisan burger joint called Victory Burger in the space adjacent to his North Oakland cafe. According to Bednarz, the new restaurant’s overall theme is going to draw on World War II imagery — Victory Gardens and “Do Your Part” messaging, plus an industrial-shipyard aesthetic and lots of pickled things. Bednarz hopes to break ground in a couple months. In the meantime he’s launched a $25,000 Kickstarter campaign specifically to fund the restaurant’s facade and other aesthetic elements.
