New Soul Restaurant

Heads-up: There’s a new celebrity chef coming to town. Yep, another one. Only this one is not going to serve the same old foie gras and duck confit salad (snore). And she’s not coming to San Francisco, nor Berkeley’s Gourmet Ghetto, nor even Yountville.

No, Tanya Holland, Food Network star and author of New Soul Cuisine, is opening her new joint, Brown Sugar, right in West Oakland.

The San Francisco Business Times’ Ryan Tate reported today that Holland has lined up funding for her venture, to be located in the site of the former Triangle Cafe, at 26th Street and Mandela Parkway. Her website lists January, 2008 as the projected opening.

Good luck, Tanya, and be good (sorry, we couldn’t resist).
