Rudy's Can't Fail Cafe, a new Uptown restaurant, is celebrated its grand opening on June 6th, 2011.

The eatery, at 1805 Telegraph Ave. in Oakland, joins several other hip spots that have opened in Oakland's Uptown neighborhood, an area that has been revitalized in the last few years.

It is across the street from the Fox Theater, a historic venue that was re-opened after a major overhaul in 2009.

Jeffery Bischoff, a former music industry entreprenuer, came up with the concept for a kitchy cafe serving classic diner food whipped up with locally-sourced ingredients and partnered with Steve Mills and Dirnt. The first Rudy's location opened in Emeryville in 2002.

According to the restaurant's blog, "Named after a classic song by the Clash and partially owned by Green Day's Mike Dirnt, it's a rockin' spot with a lot of whimsical detail."

Its menu features creatively-named dishes including Combat Mac and Cheese, Mr. Roadies Fish and Chips, and Your Own Private Eyedaho, hash browns covered in melted cheddar served with a sunny side up egg.
