KronnerBurger May Have Flagship on Broadway in Oakland; Charlie Trotter Coming for Special M.Y. China Dinner
Oakland: As reported back in February, Chris Kronner has been hunting for spaces to expand KronnerBurger to Oakland. But as he now tells the East Bay Express, he's got his eye on two spaces on Broadway, either of which could become the flagship KronnerBurger, with the S.F. location at Bruno's being just a pop-up that may or may not last.
