With its bright-pink paint job, funky wallpaper, and hipster clientele, former Top Chef contestant Preeti Mistry’s Indian street-food spot joins a small handful of standard bearers for the Oakland food renaissance — hip, casual restaurants that serve food that's steeped in tradition but feels thoroughly modern. The centerpiece of the menu is the street-food sandwich known as the pav — India’s answer to the slider — and Mistry’s serves several stellar versions, filled, variously, with tender beef short rib, perfectly grilled green-chile chicken, or fried potato puffs. But man cannot subsist on street snacks alone, and the menu at Juhu Beach Club has plenty of other delights: a hearty entrée-size curry featuring whole, slow-cooked chicken leg; a slightly salty, grown-up take on a mango lassi; and Straus soft-serve ice cream served with a variety of interesting, South-Asian-inspired toppings.
