Wrecking Ball Coffee Departs Firehouse 8; Guest Chef Closes in Oakland

By

Russian Hill: The multi-use space that is Firehouse 8 (1648 Pacific Avenue) no longer has their regular coffee vendor, Wrecking Ball Coffee. And the split doesn't sound amicable. [Sprudge via Eater]
Embarcadero: Chef Kory Stewart and foraging expert/author Connie Green are putting together the third annual Wild Foods Dinner at Americano on June 6. The meal will feature wild vegetation foraged in the Sierras, as well as wild fish and meat. It's $85 per person, it starts with a reception at 5:30 p.m., and you can make a reservation here.

Oakland: Guest Chef in Rockridge is closed, which is not surprising given that recent, unexplained temporary closure, and given that owner Scott Cameron is moving on to work on The Commissar and Mad Monk in Berkeley. [Zagat]
