Last September, we predicted that Rudy's Cafe, a popular Emeryville comfort food joint co-owned by Green Day bassist Mike Dirnt, would be the next addition to a newly refurbished downtown Oakaland. And lo and behold, our wish came true. An article in the December issue of Diablo Magazine confirmed that indeed, a new iteration of Rudy's will move into a large commercial space that abuts the Fox Theater. Managing partner Douglas Smith told Diablo that he can't dish out too many details at this point, but he did promise that the new Rudy's will be much like the old Rudy's: hip and cheap, its menu stocked with classic American cuisine.
