Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
We have been there about 7 times over the past ten years. It is great everytime. If you want a fine dining experience in the East Bay it would be my top recommendation. Skip the overly hyped -- and not so great places -- like Chez Panisse and go here instead.
Excellent. Best cinnamon rolls in the City of Berkeley that I have tasted.
Not sure when this review was written, but I couldn't disagree more. Chef Alter has a firm grasp on flavor profiles and composes plates like a true artist. In a single dish, the diner can have half a dozen different bites, each for foretelling techniques that take hours to execute. Chef combines texture, temperature, and taste in manners that keep your palate interested and eager for more. She does plays on many foods that bring back childhood memories in a sophisticated way. And the source ingredients are as fresh and seasonal as can be.
I get around to many restaurants, but this one keeps me coming back for more and more. Hands down, my favorite Oakland restaurant.
The Studio's actual grand opening is Sept 13th! However, we will be chillin' in the studio this Friday night. So feel free to stop by! We have quite a bit a work up from various bay area artists on display right now. Plus we have a huge ROBOT, "Friendly Lord Zondar". You can see some of the work on display here: https://www.facebook.com/Studio23Alameda
Their new website is http://www.buildingeducator.com
This is my favourite place. The ambience, bar, the freshest ingredients to create my "inner Pizza" and the very acceptable pricing.
Their beers, and cocktails are crafted by the best bar staff in the area and the restaurant brings in families, academics, students, lovers and friends. I highly recommend BUILD.
This is an excellent bookstore. Jean and Daryl are very knowledgeable and helpful. I always find something at Bibliomania. Jean knows what I read and will e-mail me or tell me when we cross paths in the neighborhood about a book that might interest me. Bibliomania is conveniently located a block from the 19th Street BART station on Broadway, and there is plenty to do in the neighborhood, including the Fox Theater, Rudy's Can't Fail Cafe, and Fox Square Park. I highly recommend Bibliomania.
Smoke Berkeley is really good. My favorite is the pulled pork sandwich with spicy vinagre sauce, with corn bread. And the pies are dreamy!
East Bay Spice Co. is charting a new frontier in the Bay Area's culinary cocktail scene. You'd need a constellation of stars to do it justice.
One must try: Ornament of the World. It's unlike anything else.
12 out of 10.
Deepak, Quilty, and the Blind Tiger dudes are sensory pioneers; prepare yourselves!
Mr. Varlack is setting the standard for teaching and healing. I went in to try acupuncture and ended up learning so much about my body and health.
paco collars are the best collars I have seen, they will customise whatever you want, they are well made and long lasting, paco collars was a dream to work with. I look forward to ordering more stuff from them. I want new leashes and a belt to match my dogs collar.
Love their Friday Blue Plate Special: Two Wild Sprimp Tacos with Cabbage Slaw and Chipotle Cream!
We LOVE Eli's...Great people that work there, cool people that go there. And TWAT wiill be playing there on 6/21/13. Why they (EBE) never put our ads up is a mystery....
My favorite roasted chicken in the east bay, and the Aji Amarillo sauce rocks!
This is my favorite place for all my pets needs. They love to shop there and see Pearl.
Remarkably fresh, clean flavored stimulating food. Run don't walk!
Amazing and total mix-it-up venue; though you never know what event is going on when you show up, they always deliver, the security is fabulous, the staff is courteous and inviting, and the decor is freakin awesome. The have 2 different rooms you can dance in and one whole bar room all equipt with gold couches and hand painted coffee tables all over (they even have cute stenciled F8 logos in the corners!). Even in the backroom, which is smaller, the DJ is heard completely and without any clash between the the smaller and the larger rooms and it looks like they actually take care of the decor; there's a giant mural on the back wall that is apparently changed seasonally. I would totally recommend going here on a night with the bands (Tuesdays,) or for Housepitality (free champagne from 9-10) or on Saturdays when Trapp City is hosting the evening.
My favorite place to sit and write. Nicely lit, decent chairs, big windows looking out to flowing trees.
The phone number is wrong, it is 510.788.5821. Also, it is NOT a "little" shop but the largest by space and titles on the Avenue and one of the largest used bookshops in the EAST BAY, COVERING ALL SUBJECTS. Also the web page is down now but will be back up soon.
You can see a short video of the shop at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8EC_WdLmMbc
You have the wrong website for Porky's Pizza Palace, the correct one is www.PorkysPizzaPalace.com
You can connect to our OnLine Ordering from our home page. See you at our Knee Deep Brewing in SF Beer Week Tasting tomorrow.
