Best New Gourmet Ghetto 

Glenview

Move over, Gourmet Ghetto and Temescal — stop hogging all the PR. There's a new kid in town, and it's Glenview. This sleepy little neighborhood at the foot of the Oakland Hills near Piedmont and Crocker Highlands is the East Bay's au courant foodie destination, thanks primarily to Bellanico and Marzano. Charming Park Boulevard, with its quaint commercial section and neat houses, has generated quite some buzz with these two new Italian trattorias. Foodies from afar are flocking to Bellanico, which traces its roots to SF's Aperto, for its unsurpassed cicchetti, antipasti, and primi dishes. Meanwhile, Marzano, with a decidedly southern Italian bent and stellar pizza combos, comes from the folks behind Garibaldi's and has a real fan base, too. Throw into the mix another much-anticipated newcomer — a pan-Latin spinoff of the popular À Côté — plus the down-home deliciousness of the ensconced Blackberry Bistro as well as the handful other newish and established neighborhood-vibe restaurants for just enough critical mass to give Berkeley's famed district a run for its money.
