Where the young and hungry go, Rosamunde will follow. The sausage spot has been on an expansion tear in recent years, spreading from the petite Lower Haight original to open more sizable, beer-equipped outposts in the Mission, downtown Oakland's Swan's Market, and even Brooklyn. Now they're going for a second Oakland location, with plans to open an outpost in the space that currently houses Good Bellies Cafe in Temescal. As Inside Scoop reports, owner Josh Margolis chose the neighborhood for its bustling restaurant row, which also includes Pizzaiolo, Doña Tomas, Bowl'd, Cholita Linda, and the long-shuttered (and awesomely neon-signed) Kasper's Hot Dogs space, which will presumably drive a bit of nostalgic business Rosamunde's way.
Good Bellies came to the end of its four-year run in the space on Friday, and Rosamunde now has the keys with hopes of a mid-November re-opening. The formula won't change: expect 12 or so types of sausage, including a vegan version, along with all the fixings, and a 12-draft beer offering. It's still unclear if this location will also offer brunch or delivery, as the Mission one does. They're also hoping to apply for and receive late-night hours, to court bargoers, and an outdoor seating area similar to the one they have at the other Oakland location. We'll keep you posted as the opening draws near.
