Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
Lush Gelato is also open and serving many flavors at their store at the back of Epicurious Garden, 1511 Shattuck Ave. in Berkeley (across the street from the Cheeseboard).
I have yet to try the restaurant so I cannot say yea or nay. However I can say nay to the naming of the title, "taming the devilish spices". Why is the paper associating the devil with something of Africa? Regardless of one's religious leaning or lack of things associated with the devil tend to be negative. Whether written by staffer or reader I expect more from Eastbay Express.
It's a lovely space, with awesome people, but, yes, it's the coffee we come here for! Absolutely amazing!
I'm pretty sure it's Healdsburg, not Humboldt, but damn that coffee gets me high...
Teance in Berkeley is best!
It's not the Sacramento River, it's Suisun Bay. And thank you for including their hours of operation in your report! It shows great journalistic integrity! Now your readers can travel all the way out there and be surprised that it is closed! What fun!
I'm moving to Oakland from SF thanks to Mama Buzz. I only wish Farley's East were as fun as her counterpart.
great place, great article, thank you
So exciting to see this article! The HTC has such a diverse selection of alcohol for unbeatable prices, shuffleboard table, and taco truck (now Thurs - Sun). Not to mention the owners and staff are just down-to-earth great people : )
Slow down a bit with the enthusiasm for Glenview. Bellanico and Marzano are both good, and nicely priced, but the menus are too similar and the dishes have a certain uniformity. We need a broader, more original California cuisine in Glenview. Where are the mussels, crab, eel or smoked fish? Quail, snails, boar or rabbit? Avocados, turnips, walnuts, pears, ginger, coriander, lavender, citrus? Glenview is still too safe for really adventurous foodies, and I speak as someone who lives, and eats, there.
I have been to Chef Devon's dinners and he is amazing. Most chefs are shy or arrogant. Devon is the perfect blend of confidence and talent.
Get me to thee! Do you offer mail order deliveries?
Even compare to other Japanese restaurant which is expensive,
Still GETA is the Best !!!
I.m from Japan.
Ask for Christina!
For a bartender with these same qualities in the Oakland area - visit Maxwell's Lounge. On Saturday evenings and some Fridays you will find me there - the vixen of cocktail mixing.
Nice little advertising for your boyfriends cafe. I heard you have a crush on the owner of Rooz and you're mad 'cause he doesn't play on your team. Move on pal..... Be gone Dan, Be gone......
Uncle Willie's BBQ was the worst food I ever had. Went there because of your Best Of The Bay article and I love good BBQ. Got a 4 way combo - nothing was editable, not even the sides - big waste of time and money!!!
Penny's is the Sh*T
The food is OK, but if you don't want to wait 30 minutes for them to pick up the check, and another 30 minutes to bring it back, then this is not a place for you. The owners loved to talk to their friends and don't care who is in the restaurant.
The first time I ate in this restaurant, I saw a couple arrived, and were given a menu. I was served already, but the couple waited and waited, and finally gave up and left. The same problem: They were having a nice conversation with friends about life.
Then it was my turn. I went there 5 times, and got tired of waiting for the check. Even if you ask them, still won't come for a long while. That is just how they are. Too bad, and I am not going back there ever.
