A Sneek Peek at Tribune TavernI am excited for the opening of Tribune Tavern as it fills a hole in the Downtown Oakland business area.
In the area around 14th and Broadway, there are few places open for an after work drink and dinner, and even fewer places serving the kind of elevated bar food that Tribune has on its menu.
Tribune Tavern isn’t trying to push innovation, but they are true to the restaurant group's motto of “quality ingredients, perfectly executed.” That is accomplished in spades.

Tribune Tavern Swaps Chefs3) There’s a new chef at downtown Oakland’s Tribune Tavern (401 13th St.). According to Inside Scoop, Tracey Belock, who was most recently the chef at the dearly departed Disco Volante, has replaced opening chef Huw Thornton. A press release sent out this week stated that the restaurant’s basic concept — classed-up pub food — won’t change, but Belock will be adding versions of dishes like Oysters Rockefeller and Chicken à la King to the menu in the coming weeks.
