This California bistro joint, housed in a grand-looking 1920s-era building, features more than one hundred vodkas, plus specialty cocktails.

Oakland’s Auto Row may be a daft place to open a neighborhood bistro — after hours, there are more shiny new cars around here than neighbors. But it’s precisely the chummy neighborhood vibe that makes Sheila and Mehdi Zarekari’s cafe an easygoing place to grab a Caesar, a burger, and a drink (the bar stocks more than one hundred vodkas). The rest of the menu can be clunky, but the grand-looking 1920s-era building communicates its own sense of grace.

Hours: Mon. 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m.; Tue.-Fri. 8 a.m.-10 p.m.; Sat. 5 p.m.-10 p.m.
