A permit reveals a new “Japanese tapas” place in Berkeley, ~KIRAKU~. A couple brand-new posts on Yelp mention dishes like tempura corn, grilled hamachi, and Asahi on tap, 2655 Telegraph Ave. at Parker, Berkeley, 510-848-2758.

A tip on Chowhound announces there will be a new place from Geta: an izakaya named ~B-DAMA~ opening nearby on Piedmont Avenue. It’s reportedly due to open this month. And that’s about all I have for you because I didn’t get my act together to get more details, and the Fourth of July holiday really didn’t help matters. Fire me, go ahead, I dare you!
