Oakland’s Amba Has Closed (But May Reopen As a Kosher Restaurant)

As we posted a few weeks ago, Oakland, CA’s kosher Middle Eastern restaurant, Amba, has officially closed its doors. However, this article intimates that the new owners of the restaurant space will be reopening it as a kosher restaurant.

Amba is the only kosher restaurant in the East Bay, although both Oakland Kosher Foods and Grand Bakery in Oakland have a few tables for on-site kosher dining; neither, however, is open for dinner.
