This lively downtown Oakland spot fits into classic wine bar mold, with a food menu that’s limited to small plates, so you might make a meal of, say, a bowl of mussels, panini, and a simple salad. There isn’t a stove on-site, which means you’ll do well if you stick to the kinds of dishes that put their best foot forward when baked in a hot oven — the baked käsespätzle (like a German mac ’n’ cheese) is particularly memorable. Happy hour typically features a number of good deals.
