Place to eat before show at Paramount-tomorrow

Lkanne154 Dec 4, 2008 01:55 PM

I am looking for a place to get a quick bite to eat for 6-8 people before going to an 8:00 show at the Paramount. Any and all suggestions welcome.

    Flora is not far away, but I'd call for a reservation for that many people. Luka's also isn't far away, and would be a good bet. And the brand new (opening tonight) Ozumo might be a fun place.

      Luka's is very close but it might not be quick. It can get busy.

      Flora is also close by. I've heard good things but haven't been.

      Luka's Taproom
      2221 Broadway, Oakland, CA 94612

      1900 Telegraph Ave, Oakland, CA 94612

        There's also Luka's "sister" restaurant, Franklin Square Wine Bar, across the street.

          If you opt to sit in the lounge, you can cut out a lot of the wait time.
