1015 Clay Closed in Old Oakland, Tatuyo Opens In Its Place

Semi-popular sandwich destination 1015 Clay which earlier this year was the site of a kerfuffle of some kind involving Chop Bar partner Jesse Branstetter, who helped open the place in June only to flee by mid-July and take his menu and talents on over to Vitus, instead is no more. Already open in its place is Tatuyo, a taqueria that takes its name from a tribe of native South American people who reside primarily in Columbia. New owners Sergio and Nadine Afanador made quick work of revamping the place, which had only been dark a few weeks, and perhaps giving nearby (and more high-end) Tamarindo a run for their money.

The initial Yelp response is very positive, especially for the fish taco and the carne asada and perhaps also because they've been handing out free horchatas with every purchase this week.

On the menu there's a selection of tacos, quesadillas and the like, as well as a Mexican "street dog," and a selection of burgers and tapas as well. Also, they've got free wi-fi. See the chalkboard menu below, courtesy of Jon B. at Yelp.
