Mid-Week Menu: Tribune TavernTwo months after opening Lungomare in Jack London Square, Chris Pastena (Chop Bar) and Temoor Noor (Grand Tavern) are ready to launch yet another high-profile project in Downtown Oakland. Tribune Tavern, a 150-seat restaurant on the ground floor of the historic Tribune Tower (401 13th St.), will open for dinner on Wednesday, April 10. Chef Huw Thornton’s menu plays off the tavern/pub theme, with versions of dishes like shepherd’s pie and Welsh rarebit, as well as a selection of dry-aged steaks.

Weekly Dish: Tribune Tavern RisesFirst up, I had a chance to get a sneak peek of the Tribune Tavern, the upcoming new restaurant from Chris Pastena located in the ground floor of downtown Oakland’s iconic Tribune Tower. Set for a grand opening next Wednesday, April 10, Pastena, a co-owner of Chop Bar who recently opened Lungomare in Jack London Square, partnered with Teemor Noor of Grand Tavern and local Oakland businessman Tom Henderson, who bought the building in 2011.
