Good to see this local favorite back so quickly after some vandals set a fire in their dumpster.  From SFChronicle’s Inside Scoop SF restaurant blog:

Nearly a week after vandals set fire to its trash cans and essentially shut down the restaurant, Oakland’s Hawker Fare will reopen tonight.

Chef-owner James Syhabout, sounding relieved, says PG&E came first thing Monday morning to repair the torched electrical meters. The cooks got back in the kitchen yesterday, and following a day worth of prep work, they plan to reopen for dinner service. Going forward, normal hours will be in effect.
