Re: “Communitē Table Is a Welcome Addition to Oakland's Laurel District

I I had a delicious meatloaf sandwich/green salad for lunch there last week.
Very relaxed and un-fussy vibe with a Nina Simone album playing in the background. Bliss!

I can't wait to try Michele's new venture. I have had the opportunity to sample her delicious food at Pouet and the former Gulf Coast Oyster Bar, and her cooking rocks!

Will look forward to trying Communite's potpie. The large potpie @Bakesale Betty is more easily obtained by going in and ordering it for pickup in 48 hrs, btw.

Re: “Wine and Dine

We love Barrel Room/Oakland: sorry you missed the previous Spain/Portugal theme, it was even better than the current French! But we thought the texture of the Boeuf Bourguignon was actually off, although tasty. You can't go wrong with staff reco's for wine: Jenny Lemay, the sommelier, has been our waitress on both our visits. She is certified with the Court of Master Sommeliers, meaning she's passed the Level II exams and is continuing her studies for the Advanced exams. She's a gem!

Re: “A West Berkeley Restaurant with Adults in Mind

I live in the neighborhood and had happily anticipated the opening of Longbranch. The food is good, mixed drinks selection is great. But the several times I've been in there, each time there has been something off with the staff—first time they told us we couldn't sit in dining room because there wasn't space, yet for the three hours we were there only two or three of the tables were occupied. Second time the waitress didn't know anything about the wine list and had to call over a bartender, who recommended a reallllly mediocre wine as "the best on the menu." Third time we had a reservation, yet they seated us at a table right by the door to bathrooms/kitchen and waitress just brought us our bill after never speaking to us after taking our orders (didn't ask how we were doing once our food arrived, never asked if we might want dessert....) Really strange. Much better service at their other restaurant right next door, so who knows what's up.

Re: “A West Berkeley Restaurant with Adults in Mind

One of the greatest shows I ever saw-and I saw plenty as a roadie and engineer-was Toots And The Maytals at The Longbranch. We still talk about it and it was 40 years ago.

Can't wait to check it out! But East 23nd St and 10th Ave is Clinton, not Eastlake. https://localwiki.org/oakland/Clinton https://localwiki.org/oakland/Merritt

Re: “Everyday Izakaya

Wholeheartedly agree. I love the Swan's Market, especially with the addition of B-Dama.

Re: “BBQ Hut May Be the Best Barbecue Joint in the East Bay

You know how you find a great BBQ place and you go back only to be disappointed. Well that is not this place! The food here is consistently great.

Re: “Pleasures of the Flesh-Free

you could eat here, but why would you when nature vegetarian is down the street and light years better without the weird supreme master cult.

Re: “BBQ Hut May Be the Best Barbecue Joint in the East Bay

This is the best place, hands down. Pricy but damn worth every penny.

The baby back ribs are the bomb.com! The sauce is optional as it is not needed on these dry-rubbed ribs as they are perfect sauce-less.

Re: “A New Barbecue Regionalism

I wish there was comments in the early days about flints in Oakland and Archies and Leonards in San Francisco they were really great!!!!

Re: “The World Is Your Oyster

We ate at Jack's last night. Spinach salad/fried oysters was good, but the crabcake was ridiculously salty, as was the grilled salmon and cioppino. There was even salt sprinkled on the tops of the jalapeno corn muffins! Great if you're intent upon getting sloshed on big cocktails, otherwise...nope. Very disappointing!
