Best of California Rec for a Cajun Visitor?

I have a cajun chow friend into visiting and where do we go for dinner Saturday night?
I'm looking for someplace that will show off the best of California, in the East Bay, preferably in Contra Costa County....someplace that will knock his socks off!
Not a lot of sock-rocking east of the hills. Drive through the tunnel and go to Pizzaiolo. Great food in a laid-back, only-in-Oakland atmosphere.
There's currently not a single restaurant in Contra Costa County with food that justifies a drive through the tunnel. Some might say that Bo's or Casa Orinda are, but you're not likely to impress a visitor from Louisiana by taking him to a barbecue or fried-chicken place.
Pizzaiolo's just a few blocks off 24. Take the Telegraph exit.
