A warm, cozy and bustling restaurant that redefines the tavern for a modern clientele while not at all losing the casual friendliness. Like most top establishments in the SF Bay Area, Wood Tavern offers a menu defined by California's exceptional seasonal offerings with a wine list to match. There is also a full bar with a good mix of the bespoke and the standards.

The first of Chez Panisse alum Charlie Hallowell's restaurants, Pizzaiolo is not just a pizza shack. It's a cullinary treatise to the seasonal offerings of California, the roots of it's founder and his passion for the kitchen. You will not be disappointed by this warm and giving gem of North Oakland.

I've eaten ramen all over Japan from Osaka and Kyoto to Tokyo, up to Sendai and even further on up to Hakodate, Sapporo and much smaller and more remote locations. This is possibly the best Ramen outside of Japan. Go early! There are no reservations and the wait can be long. When we finally got in on our fifth attempt, I so wanted to hate this place and for it not to live up to hype it had received localy. Sadly and happily, my desires were smashed by their perfection of Japan's simple soup. Soul food to millions on the other side of the world made with care and respect in Oakland. :)

The first of kitchen pals Dona Savitsky and Thomas Schnetz restaurants, Doña Tomás blends traditional Mexican dishes with the bounty of California and the San Francisco Bay Area. This is not a burrito joint! This is food made slowly and with great care. Please sit down, stay a while and enjoy one of the best meals you will have without crossing the border or jumping a wall. ;)

The best kind of Sushi Shop, Uzen is small with only a few tables and an ample counter/bar. The owner/chef is there most evenings. The fish is fresh and the Kara Age is hot, crispy and juicy.

The North Oakland location of the SF Hipster favorite. It really is good. Try the fermented tea leaf salad - salty, pungent, fresh and crunchy.

This is no typical burrito joint! It's the fourth culinary venture of Dona Savitsky and Thomas Schnetz ( Doña Thomas, Tacubaya, Flora, Xolo and Fauna). It strays from the typical SF Bay Area, Mission style burrito faire. There are no choices of beans, rice, meat or size. The burritos are always the same size and there are only a few composed burrito options, for example: The Pollo, my favorite, which contains achiote marinated chicken thighs, black beans and an avocado salsa. The Machaca, a braised beef wonder - beautiful beef stew wrapped in a tortilla. The Chile Relleno burrito, which is exactly a perfectly deep-fried chile relleno snuggled into a burrito. http://xolotaqueria.com/

This is by far the best taqueria in the SF Bay Area. It's the second restaurant from Dona Savitsky and Thomas Schnetz ( Doña Thomas, Tacubaya, Flora, Xolo and Fauna). No Burritos here. You'll have to go to Xolo for that. My girlfriend and I have agreed that if we could only eat one thing for the rest of our lives, it would be the black beans and rice from Tacubaya. A slice of avocado on the side every once in awhile would be icing. But they also have the most amazing tacos, tortas, enchiladas, and chilaquiles! http://tacubaya.net/

Good coffee and espresso drinks, sandwiches and soft drinks. Hipster staff and better than average tunes playing over the house sound system - a healthy bias toward indie and underground artists of the KALX variety vs. live 105. There is a decent amount of seating and Wi-Fi is available.

Getting Around
Right in the center of Rockridge, above tree-lined streets. Pittsburg/Baypoint and SF/SF Airport lines only. Can connect to other lines one stop away on SF lines at MacArthur station. Several major ACT bus lines can be caught here as well on either side of College Ave just below the elevated train lines. Emeryville's free shopper and commuter shuttles, Emery Go Round, can be caught here as well.
