Opening today in Oakland is NICK’S PIZZA, a new pizzeria from chef Nick Yapor-Cox. He grew up in North Oakland and has cooked in the pastry department back east at Eleven Madison Park and Butter, in addition to local spots Ici Ice Cream, B Restaurant, and Arizmendi Bakery and Pizzeria in Emeryville. Nick’s is offering “Oakland-style pizza,” with an organic sourdough crust, locally sourced and organic produce, humanely raised meats, and hormone-free cheeses.

The weekly changing menu will feature around five or six choices each day, with no customizable options; the opening menu includes a cheese version, pepperoni, a seasonal spring pizza, roasted mushroom, Nick’s Pick (prosciutto, cherry tomatoes, fresh and aged mozzarella, arugula, and Meyer lemon vinaigrette), and a vegan pie. Pizzas will come in one size and are available by the slice ($2.50 and up) or whole pie ($20-$30), along with some salads and desserts, too. Lunch and dinner will be available Tue-Sat 11am-9pm, with delivery after 5pm; eat in or take out. 6211 Shattuck Ave. at 62nd St., Oakland, 510-658-3903.

A reader writes in with this tidbit: “Wonder if you know anything about THE TRAPPIST’s second location in Rockridge next door to Southie. I noticed a sign on the door of an empty storefront next to Southie for a beer and wine license for a Belgian Bier Cafe LLC—which with a little sleuthing turns up the same address for The Trappist in downtown Oakland. I am guessing that Belgian Bier Cafe LLC is Trappist’s operating company name.” Yeah, and I should hire this tipster, right? I wish all tips came in so well researched, heh. Stand by for more when I hear back from a Trappist contact—it ends up the gents I need to speak with are currently in Belgium. 6309 College Ave. at 63rd St., Oakland.

And Berkeleyside mentions the opening of CRUNCH CUTLET & NOODLE, a casual spot with a menu of Korean and Japanese dishes ranging from cutlets to ramen to skewers. 2144 Center St. at Oxford, Berkeley.
