Some Berkeley Buzz: first, Berkeleyside reports ~SKETCH ICE CREAM~ will be reopening in a new space that’s three times as large as its original spot at 2080 4th St. (which also means an expanded offering, like baked goods and candy). The targeted opening is mid-July. 2080 4th St. at Addison, Berkeley.

Chowhound reports ~MAOZ VEGETARIAN BERKELEY~ has closed. 2395 Telegraph Ave., Berkeley.

Also on Chowhound: the owners of Bowl’d on Solano have also opened ~SPOON KOREAN BISTRO~ near Berkeley Bowl West, serving Korean dishes like juk, kim bop, and soondubu. Open 8am-4pm, and there’s a patio. 933 Ashby St. at 9th, Berkeley, 510-704-9555.

Did you know Dorothée Mitrani-Bell reopened ~CAFÉ CLEM~ near the Berkeley Public Library’s main branch? Here’s more in the East Bay Express. Mon-Fri 7 am-5pm, Sat-Sun, 8am-4pm. 2020 Kittredge St., Berkeley, 510-280-3881.
