Grasshopper in Oakland?

  • c

Has anyone tried Grasshopper in Oakland? Have seen some good reviews. It's a small plates and sake type of place by some former Cafe Rouge employees. Any interest in a Chowhound dinner there?

    Sounds fun--how about week of July 30?

      I'm interested in expanding my sake horizons. I'm available Monday, July 30, then out of town for a week.

      When I was visiting last month, I walked by and found it bustling on an early weekend evening; the windows were thrown open, and the food on the plates I saw looked good and the menu interesting. Unfortunately, I had just eaten.

        Thanks - too bad you can't come out and visit again - we're going to do dinner there on July 31! I might even stop by after the blood bank appointment today just to check it out. We'll be sure to let you know how it is - and whether you need to put it on your list next visit!

          Unfortunately, I'm sure it will be a good while till I'm out again and can indulge in my Bay Area culinary favorites (just this morning I was longing for a really sour sourdough, like an Acme levain--just can't get that here). For now, I'm rationing what's left of the big bag of Meyer lemons I brought back from the family lemon tree. But if Grasshopper is to be recommended, I'll certainly pass that on to friends and family.
