Café V; photo via Yelp.
The ABC is showing a new beer and wine permit for ~CAFÉ V~ on San Pablo in Berkeley. Word is they are serving Vietnamese-inspired cuisine, with a happy hour (5:30pm-8pm) and three beers on tap, but details are scarce. Seems like they are in soft opening mode. Stay tuned! Tue-Thu 5:30pm-10pm, Fri 5:30pm-11pm, Sat 5:30pm-11:30pm. 2056 San Pablo Ave. at Addison, Berkeley, 510-548-2222.
A tablehopper tipster alerted me that ~COCINA POBLANA~ in Emeryville has closed. A sign posted in window says, “Coming soon: Los Moles.” 1320 65th St. at Hollis, Emeryville.
