New Owners for Oakland's Caffe 817

I heard from Luigi Ruocco of Mr. Espresso that Scott and Emily Goldenberg have taken over ~CAFFE 817~ in Oakland. Luigi says, “Caffe 817 has long been a favorite local breakfast and lunch destination for employees of Mr. Espresso, so needless to say, we’re thrilled to be working with them! And they have a great cooking background, both having just left long term stints as sous chefs at Zuni Cafe in SF to take over 817.” I didn’t hear back from them in time for this mention, so I guess folks in the neighborhood will need to check in to see what Scott and Emily’s changes and updates to the menu are. 817 Washington St. at 8th St., Oakland, 510-271-7965.
