I can't find another building that has more studios than the Sawtooth Building in Berkeley California or anywhere else.
This is an ancient address for my dream groups (maybe 2005). Occasionally someone goes to Grand Avenue looking for the group. Please check out www.dreamreplay.com. Thanks David Jenkins
This all sounds like someone or a small group's pet project to get a restaurant built with a view. I suspect hidden motivations and not for the overall good for the public.
This is the same mentality shown be the City when they tried to re do the Chabot Golf course and re route and rebuild a club house restaurant with a view
The map showing this in West Oakland is wrong because the zip code is really 94606. It's on EAST 18th, and the actual cross street is 14th Ave
Let me go out on a limb and state that this is probably a good burger. It could even be a great burger, and at $12 for a six ounce patty, it still appears to be conventionally raised beef, not touted as sustainable or organic or even with any non-cruelty standards applied to the raising and care of the beef, and wait-- I haven't even been charged yet for extra caramelized onions or jalapeños, much less any carbs or tater tots.
I don't mean to pick on Handlebar, but I'm just approaching the place as my wife and I did the other week. We saw the menu, realized that we would be spending nearly $20 apiece for a hamburger, fries and a drink, and we turned around and visited another joint. We all have noted that a lot of restaurants are saying that they buy local, organic, sustainable produce and meat, etc. etc. provide a living wage to their employees, blah blah blah...but it wasn't even stated as organic.
Handlebar is just another example of I've-got-cred-and- now-I-can-charge-the-asses-off-the-foodie-and- gullible. If the ingredients were organic etc., I would possibly consider the purchase, but for $40 I could head home, buy enough ingredients on my own, and serve 4-6 people a relatively decent and comparable burger. Yah, it may not be as good, but $12 is $12.
Hell, Barney's still delivers a decent sandwich for a lot less. Jus' sayin'.
Sketchy, unprofessional. Rude staff and ultra-masculine security guards. Not sure why "patient" is in the name or why it is considered to be medical. (They are also unaware of use of pesticides in flowers and solvents in concentrates - how is that medical?)
Same for me. I followed Julie here too. She's the best! And yeah, no pretentious hipster vibe, but often some cool art.
Overpriced, with small portions
I love this place! Parking is easy, the salon is quiet and relaxing, I followed my hair stylist Julie here (who is now the owner) and I like so much better! I have recommended it to friends/co-workers who also love it. No pretentious hipster vibe here
Really great store...loads of selection! Sizes start at a 10 and go to a 24.
Always a fun stop on the bike, been going since the kids were young. They liked running down the haunted apartments hallway above, at least that's what we told them. Good BBQ, and the bands always sound good.
Simply the best Indian restaurant in the Bay Area! Their food is mostly locally-sourced and organic.
