After hearing rumors and receiving tip-offs from some readers, we can report that LE CHEVAL has officially reopened in its original Oakland location after getting squeezed out by their landlord back in 2010. Inside Scoop has more on the backstory on how they got their space back if you’re interested. Meanwhile, sister restaurant LCX (at 1019 Clay St.) is closed, and is reportedly due to reopen as LCX Noodle House and Wine Bar.
