[UPDATED] Mid-Week Menu: Berkeley’s T-Rex Sold (Jimmy Bean’s to Follow?), Uptown’s Bakesale Betty Closed

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

1) The observant restaurant watchers at Chowhound were the first to spy changes afoot in Haig and Cindy Krikorians’ K2 restaurant mini-empire, citing a rumored ownership switch both at BBQ joint T-Rex and the casual cafe Jimmy Bean’s. Inside Scoop confirms that Matt Sturm, co-owner of San Francisco’s Fly Bar and Solstice, has purchased T-Rex — he offers the assurance that “Everything will stay the same.”

Meanwhile, a phone call over to Jimmy Bean’s confirmed that a new ownership team will likely be announced there, too, within the next few weeks. Stay tuned for further details.
