Oakland: Nordic House and Neldham's moving to be replaced by a Korean market

There was a big "For Lease" sign on the door next to Nordic House. I asked if they were closing and was told that they will be moving around February

The new address will be 2709 San Pablo Ave, Berkeley

I am not clear how true the rest of these facts are. I can only confirm the Nordic House info since I am holding the card for the new Nordic House address in my hand.

Chatting with a few people not from Nordic House, supposedly Neldams will be moving the kitchen to Pinole. They will then move into the spot occupied by Nordic House and have baked goods delivered from Pinole.

The entire building will be renovated and the Korean market will occupy the old Neldham's spot.

Where this fell apart for me logic-wise is why would there be a for lease sign up. The new bbq is set for a few years. So I am not clear on what exactly is being leased.

Updates about Nordic House move will be on their website.

    1. With Neldham's closing, what is the status of the new Nordic House?

      According to Yelp the Berkeley location on San Pablo is now open and very nice. The website also notes the new location is open. Has anyone been yet?

        I've driven past it and keep meaning to stop. It's near the new Black Oak Books. I'm sure they both could use business.

          The location is definitely open on San Pablo. It's a large and clean space with very friendly staff, ready to answer any question. It is full of both imported food, and also kitsch items. I bought some cheese and some pearl sugar on my first visit, and will definitely be back in the future.
