In East Bay for one night - help please!
Hi Chowhounds. We're visiting the Bay Area and will be in East Bay tomorrow night visiting friends. We love Chez Panisee and Olivetto and enjoy Rivoli, but wanted to try something new. We were thinking of Pizzialo, but it is is closed on Sundays. Can you recommend a place with similar quality food? Good prices are a plus, but not absolutely necessary. Just yummy food. Thank you!

Cesar, right next door to Chez Panisse, is awesome. At this time of year, the whole front of the restaurant will be wide open, and the tapas are very very very good.
Nice vibe, but not as fancy as the other places you've suggested. The trade-off is intensely good food in a lively atmosphere.
