REBBL's Gold Label Mayan Cocoa Elixir has just won the 2020 NEXTY Award for "Best New Ready-to-Drink Beverage."

Its ingredients include maca, reishi, maitake, turkey tail mushrooms, lion's mane mushrooms, cayenne, and ashwagandha, among others.

"We're thrilled our Gold Label Mayan Cocoa won this year's 'Best New Drink,'" REBBL's chief marketing officer Bonnie Neulight said in a press release.

"We developed this as the ultimate elixir featuring four premium mushrooms. It's our priority to create organic, plant-based beverages that do not compromise on taste," Neulight said.

Given every year to companies that distinguish themselves as leaders in the natural-products industry, NEXTY Awards are divided into four categories:

Flagship NEXTY Awards are given to one standout product in each of 23 different categories. NEXTY Consumer Choice Awards are given to the top products in each of three categories: Food/Beverage; Personal Care; Natural Living. NEXTY Editors' Choice Awards are selected by a team of New Hope Network editors. NEXTY Gold Awards are given to a few brands that for several years running "truly move the mission of the national products industry forward, disrupt the status quo, and make the world a healthier, better place," the NEXTY Awards website reads.

Making ethically sourced, plant-based drinks since 2011, Emeryville-based REBBL was co-founded by Dave Batstone, who also founded the Not For Sale anti-human-trafficking nonprofit. A portion of REBBL's net sales support Not For Sale in providing shelter, education, healthcare, legal services, and job training for survivors of exploitation.

Among REBBL's other products is a new Keto Elixir line as well as two new sparkling prebiotic tonics.

Takeout-Only Sushi Arrives in Uptown

Nikkei Sushi scales back its plans and starts operating out of Itani Ramen.

by S. Rufus
Tue, Apr 28, 2020 at 7:23 PM

Celebrated chef-restaurateur Kyle Itani, who helms Itani Ramen and Hopscotch Restaurant & Bar in Uptown Oakland, has just launched a brand-new project: a takeout sushi spot.

Operating out of Itani Ramen and serving its fare via pickup and delivery, Nikkei Sushi will be open Wednesday through Sunday, 2 p.m.-8 p.m. during its soft opening with hours extending in the future.

Itani, whom the San Francisco Chronicle named a Rising Star Chef in 2013, began planning last year to open Nikkei Sushi in an Uptown location, but given the COVID-19 situation decided to operate the concept instead through Itani Ramen, which is located across from the Fox Theater.

"Seeing the private dining room at Itani Ramen empty for over a month now had me thinking about how we could adapt to better serve our community and our staff," said Itani, whose résumé includes winning an episode of the cooking show Knife Fight in 2014.

"Now more than ever, we are forced to be innovative and nimble because there is no road map for how to survive these circumstances," he said. "By creating Nikkei under the same roof as Itani Ramen, we are quickly able to create jobs and additional revenue to cover our rent and utilities."

He has loved working with sushi ever since his early days as a young chef at Yoshi's Oakland under chef Sho Kamio — who sent Itani to apprentice in Japan, then tapped him to oversee the extensive sushi kitchen at Yoshi's flagship San Francisco location.

Comprising classic and specialty rolls along with sashimi and nigiri and more, Nikkei Sushi's menu was designed specifically with affordability and delivery in mind.

"Everyone is struggling right now, so we are doing our best to keep the price point down so more people can enjoy sushi delivered safely to their doorstep, but also maintain the high standards of foods we have built our reputation upon," Itani said.

Diners also can add to their orders Itani Ramen starters such as gyoza or edamame — and even carry-out cocktails, sake, and Japanese whiskey.

Nikkei is Japanese for someone of Japanese ancestry not living in Japan. As a fourth-generation Japanese American, Itani is proud to launch another new project celebrating his roots.

Takeout orders can be placed by calling 510-788-7489. Delivery orders can be made through the Itani Ramen Caviar page. (Other platforms coming).

"Many of my colleagues and friends who own sushi restaurants have been forced to close," Itani said. "So I am planning to offer some of their team members' temporary work as well."

Benchmark Pizzeria Has Closed

Benchmark Pizzeria in Old Oakland has closed permanently. A notice now posted at the restaurant's website, addressed "to our Friends, Regulars, and Supporters," reads:

"We have made the very tough decision to close Benchmark Oakland permanently," the statement said. "Without a strong to-go business, we are unable to break even and adequately care for our employees. The end is nowhere is sight, and it is likely that our industry will be forever changed when this is over.  We lack the capital to navigate that future. Please come visit us in Kensington for some take-out, or email if you need to get in touch. All gift cards purchased here will be honored in Kensington."

Drawing the restaurant's name from the survey markers that his geologist dad enjoyed pointing out to him, chef/co-owner Peter Swanson opened the original Benchmark in Kensington in 2012 with his wife, Melissa Swanson.

The pair had met Rockridge's Oliveto Cafe & Restaurant, where Melissa worked as a host and server and Peter worked as a lead line cook. Later, Peter helped open, then worked as sous chef at, Dopo in Oakland. Melissa worked as a server at Chez Panisse.

The Oakland location opened in 2018 — serving pizza, pasta, and such cutting-edge cocktails as the Colorado Bulldog — containing vodka, cream, seltzer, New Orleans-style coffee, spiced cherry liqueur, and acid phosphate.

La Guerrera's Kitchen, Too

The brick-and-mortar Fruitvale location of La Guerrera's Kitchen is now closed permanently. Mother-and-daughter Ofelia Barajas and Reyna Maldonado decided against a new lease when their previous one ended in March, as reported by the San Francisco Chronicle. Instead, the pair will sell tamales online with pickups several days a week at the Ale Industries brewery.

Honoring their roots in Mexico's Guerrero region, Barajas and Maldonado sold handcrafted tamales on the streets of San Francisco's Mission district, attracting a loyal fanbase. Entering La Cocina's incubator-kitchen program in 2017, the pair operated pop-ups — then, last spring, they opened the brick-and-mortar restaurant whose most popular item was chicken tamales with green sauce, Maldonado said in an interview. Another brick-and-mortar restaurant elsewhere in Oakland sometime in the future is still a possibility, the Chronicle reports.

Free McMeals to Workers

Now through May 5, healthcare workers and first responders can collect free "Thank You Meals" at any McDonald's location nationwide.

Nearly all of McDonald's 14,000 restaurants nationwide are remaining open throughout the COVID-19 crisis, having implemented nearly fifty new safety measures to improve employees' well-being. The company also has donated more than $3 million worth of food — including more than 60,000 pounds of fresh produce and 1.2 million pounds of beef — to food banks and other charities.

Matt Horn and Fellow Volunteers Feed a Whole Hospital Staff

Over 600 barbecued pork and chicken sandwiches were made and donated.

Together with a team of volunteers — including the Street Royalty Motorcycle Club — popular pitmaster Matt Horn prepared and served 600 pork and chicken sandwiches to feed the entire staff at Valley Children's Hospital in Fresno.

Rather than lament the delayed opening of his eagerly awaited Horn Barbecue brick-and-mortar restaurant in the heart of Oakland, last month the pitmaster created a philanthropic project, the Horn Initiative, which has since mid-March facilitated the making and serving of over 4,000 meals to frontline workers and others in need.

“Our dream is to feed the world with our love-driven food. In times of crisis, our hope is that the meals we make with care will bring welcome relief, especially for those most in need," Horn said.

"We are a company that has been blessed with a sense of abundance. And our vision is to share that abundance as an expression of our love for people. From gratitude comes service, and from service comes love," said Horn, who credits this sense of commitment to his parents.

During his youth, they opened their home to the homeless, cooked for the hungry, and even gave away their own shoes to those who had none.

Video of the recent Fresno event can be viewed here.

Having grown up in Southern California, Horn worked in retail until a change of heart led to a change in career, fueled by fond memories of family members' backyard barbecue pits.

Since then, he has become one of the nation's most-watched Central Texas-style barbecue masters. At pop-ups around the East Bay and beyond, avid fans have been known to gladly wait more than four hours for his famous brisket and other pit-smoked meats.

The brick-and-mortar Horn Barbecue was set to open this year in the West Oakland space that formerly housed Brown Sugar Kitchen, but a delay was announced in February. Now the restaurant is expected to open next winter.

alaMar Will Celebrate Its Anniversary With a Contactless "Parade"

Marking its sixth year in business, the Uptown restaurant asks fans to drive past this Friday at 6:30 and honk.

Uptown Oakland's alaMar Kitchen & Bar will celebrate its sixth anniversary this Friday, May 1, with a contactless, social-distancing, Covid-19-crisis parade.

"In celebration of this milestone, we are asking all of our fans and supporters to parade in the safety of their cars," management announced in a press release today.

Friday evening at 6:30 p.m., "everyone can 'parade' in their cars" by driving "around alaMar while honking as a way to wish us 'Happy Anniversary,'" the announcement reads.

To those who drive past the restaurant and honk, "we will be giving away a free treat as a small token of thanks."

Presumably, cyclists can also ride past and ring their bells.

Also marking the anniversary, served from May 1 through May 3, alaMar will bring back one of its best-selling pre-Covid-19 menu items: two cheese empanadas for $6. During those same dates, the restaurant is also offering a $60 Seafood Boil Family Meal which includes a whole Alaskan snow crab along with shrimp and red potatoes submerged in sauce, accompanied by garlic noodles and bread. These specials will be available on alaMar's website through online ordering, or through DoorDash and Grubhub, or phone orders — while supplies last.

Executive chef and owner Nelson German grew up in New York City but settled in Oakland ten years ago with his Oakland-bred wife. Having earned multiple Michelin recommendations, alaMar was Oakland's first fast-casual restaurant to serve seafood boils in a quick-service format.

These days, alaMar has transitioned to a takeout/delivery model. In addition, its staff has served 300 free meals a day, five days a week, to displaced restaurant workers as part of the Lee Initiative.

German opened the Afro-Latino cocktail lounge Sobre Mesa in Oakland last month — nine days before the shelter-in-place was issued.

"This was not the way we envisioned the celebration of a big milestone," today's press release reads.

"But we support the social-distancing protocols and we put the health of our guests and team members first. We wish to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for their support in the last six years. We truly have the most passionate fans."

Now through May 5, healthcare workers and first responders can collect free "Thank You Meals" at any McDonald's location nationwide.

The promotion began on April 22.

Nearly all of McDonald's 14,000 restaurants nationwide are remaining open throughout the Covid-19 crisis, having implemented nearly fifty new safety measures to improve employees' well-being.

The company has also donated over $3 million worth of food — including over 60,000 pounds of fresh produce and 1.2 million pounds of beef — to food banks and other charities.

“During this unprecedented time, McDonald’s is guided by the belief that we are all in this together. Our system is responding in big and small ways to help our customers, including donating food to those in need,” said Marion Gross, McDonald's chief supply chain officer for North America.

“We’re here to serve communities. That has been our guiding compass for the past 65 years and remains at the heart of everything we do, now more than ever," Gross said in a press release.  

Available during breakfast, lunch, and dinner, each Thank You Meal will feature a choice of sandwiches, drinks, and a side item such as fries or hash browns, along with a note of appreciation.

The breakfast Thank You Meal features a choice between an Egg McMuffin®, Chicken McGriddles,® or a Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit.

The lunch and dinner Thank You Meal features a choice between a Double Cheeseburger, 6-Piece Chicken McNuggets,® or a Filet-O-Fish.®

“We have been inspired by the way our franchisees have been going above and beyond to support their local communities throughout this trying time,” said McDonald's USA president Joe Erlinger.

“I couldn’t be more proud of how our company, franchisees, and supplier partners have come together to give back to those who are working tirelessly for our country. That is truly our McDonald’s system at its best," Erlinger said.

McDonald's maintains locations in many East Bay cities — including Berkeley, Oakland, Alameda, El Cerrito, Richmond, and Concord.

Only one Thank You Meal can be ordered per customer per day.

Siamo Tutti Uniti

The Oakland coffee roaster Mr. Espresso is giving coffee to food banks, clinics, and shelters.

Wed, Apr 22, 2020 at 10:40 AM

This month alone, Oakland-based, family-owned Mr. Espresso has already donated more than 2,500 pounds of coffee to Bay Area COVID-19 relief efforts.

During the first two weeks of April, the 42-year-old company — founded in Alameda by enterprising Italian-born Carlo Di Ruocco and now renowned as the first and currently only outfit in the nation that uses oak wood to roast its beans — has given coffee to the Alameda County Community Food Bank and San Francisco-Marin Food Bank, Frontline Foods, East Bay FeedER, Clinica de La Raza, St. Anthony's Dining Room, Loaves and Fishes Family Kitchen, and other food-, health-, homeless-, youth-, and family-assistance programs. Coffee also has been donated to workers at eight different Bay Area hospitals.

The company is also donating supplies for displaced industry workers through the LEE Initiative, operating locally through alaMar Kitchen & Bar.

In addition, a portion of all retail purchases (now available online and by phone) go toward Mr. Espresso's In Our Hearts Fund for COVID-19 relief. Follow Mr. Espresso on Instagram for updates. 

"We've been inspired by the ingenuity and tenacity those in our industry have shown refusing to give up if there's a fighting chance, literally reinventing their entire business models overnight in order to survive," Mr. Espresso's vice president and co-owner Luigi Di Ruocco wrote at the company's website. "That same spirit assures us, it guarantees us that everyone and everything is going to be okay. We continue to be driven by the words of our Italian brothers and sisters: Siamo tutti uniti — We are all united."

Sophie's Kitchen Donates Food

East Bay resident Miles Woodruff, CEO of the pioneering vegan-seafood brand Sophie's Kitchen, has just donated 3,000 cases of plant-based Toona to the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano County as well as several other Bay Area food shelters.

Amidst the Covid-19 outbreak, the company's brand-new Lemon Grass Toona flavor has not yet arrived in grocery stores — but 100 percent of it is now being provided to people in need.

"The best way to get through hardship is to be of service to others," explained Woodruff, whose strong commitment to animal welfare has included working with the Jane Goodall Institute and as a field research assistant in the Republic of Congo. "I was feeling overwhelmed by the impact the pandemic was having and wanted to help where I could."

Founded in 2011, Sebastopol-based Sophie's Kitchen produces plant-based alternatives to crabmeat, shrimp, tuna, and salmon.

"The East Bay is my home and the Bay Area is my community, so I wanted to leverage the resources I had available to help where I could."

Señor Sisig in the town

Just in time to celebrate its ten-year anniversary, popular Filipino-fusion food truck Señor Sisig has established a long-term location in Oakland. The brand-new spot is at 3331 Fruitvale Ave. in the Dimond District.

Trucks from its fleet have served in Oakland before, but until now only at one-time-only events and at Off The Grid — never from a permanent space.

Served chiefly inside soft tacos and burritos, the company's signature dish is sisig: pork shoulder, marinated in rich seasonings for 24 hours before being chopped. Chicken and tofu versions are also available, as are sisig-festooned fries, salads, nachos, and more.

Cofounder and CEO Evan Kidera had been seeking an Oakland location for quite some time before the Dimond District spot emerged amidst the Covid-19 outbreak, as shelter-in-place rules shuttered brick-and-mortar restaurants on both sides of the bay.

The company is celebrating its anniversary by giving back to the community — collaborating with longtime partner The City Eats to feed seniors, low-income families, and others who are struggling financially right now. A new initiative, #Sisig4ThePeople, aims to raise $100,000 to help fund preparation and delivery of meals. Anyone who donates over $100 to #Sisig4ThePeople will receive an early release of the official Señor Sisig commemorative T-shirt.

Local Food Adventures Boxes

Shelter-in-place rules prevent Local Food Adventures founder Lauren McCabe Herpich from leading groups on East Bay culinary walking tours, as is her usual stock-in-trade. But she has come up with another project to further tempt food fans while supporting local makers and proprietors.

Priced at $99 (shipping included) and packaged with festive paper and a handwritten message of your choosing, the Local Love Gift Box is a curated collection of items normally featured on Local Food Adventures tours.

Each Local Love Gift Box includes a 6.78 oz. bottle of Tuscan Herb infused olive oil from Amphora Nueva; a 1/2-cup jar of Poivre a la Mode Citrus Pepper from Oaktown Spice Shop; a 17.6 oz. bag of Rustichella d'Abruzzo pasta from Market Hall Foods; a 18 oz jar of Super Q Mild Barbeque Sauce from Everett & Jones Barbeque; two 1 oz. bars of Barlovento dark chocolate from Diablo Foods; a 4 oz. satchel of Vanilla Creme black tea from Papillon Coffee; online access to Cooking at Home with Local Food Adventures: Recipes from Top Chefs as Seen on Our Tours Digital Cookbook; a $15 gift certificate for any Local Food Adventures food tour; and a Local Food Adventures reusable shopping bag.

PETA Asks to Adorn UC Berkeley's Campanile with a Pro-Vegan Ad

PETA president Ingrid Newkirk made the request in a letter to UCB Chancellor Carol Christ.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals sent UC Berkeley chancellor Carol Christ a letter today requesting permission to place a banner on the university's famous clocktower that reads "It's High Time We Went Vegan. PETA."

Signed by PETA president Ingrid Newkirk, the letter asks that the banner be hung "now, or if that’s not possible, when the campus reopens.

"It’s time to face the facts: The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 75% of recently emerged infectious diseases in humans came from other species," the letter continues, as revealed in a press release. "SARS, which originated in bats, claimed 774 lives. Swine flu, or H1N1 — which originated in pigs — killed as many as 575,400 people. And the COVID-19 death toll has already surpassed 150,000.

"Zoonotic diseases aren’t limited to a single country or to wet markets — wherever animals are bred, intensively confined in their own filth, and slaughtered, humans risk creating another pandemic. In a paper published in 2018, Belgian spatial epidemiologist Marius Gilbert found that more 'conversion events' for bird flu—in which a not very pathogenic strain of the virus becomes more dangerous—had occurred in the U.S., Europe, and Australia than in China, where it originated."

Currently closed in accordance with the shelter-in-place order, Cal's 307-foot-tall, 61-bell Sather Tower — colloquially known as the Campanile — was opened to the public in 1916. Jazz pianist Herbie Hancock gave a concert on its chimes in 1968.

Sustaining the horological badinage, Newkirk concluded:

"We can’t turn back the clock, but anyone worried about the COVID-19 outbreak can adopt a vegan lifestyle to help prevent the next global pandemic. Consuming meat, eggs, and dairy has long been known to be unhealthy and completely unnecessary, and the current coronavirus crisis is just one more reason that we, as a society, need to ring the alarm. We look forward to hearing from you."
