Mua - Oakland

This is currently my favorite place when I'm craving a burger. The Acme buns are the best and the fries are good, too. The meat isn't quite at the level of Cafe Rouge (I think they grind some aged-beef trimmings in with the chuck) or Zuni, but it's very good.
I haven't tried anything else yet except the brussels sprouts in brown butter, which are great. Nice selection of beer and wine, full bar.
I like that they're open late, though call first since the kitchen has no fixed closing time.
I started a new topic to put the name in the title. Here's the previous one:
I'd never have guessed it had anything to do with Soizic, which I don't care for.
2442A Webster Street, Oakland, CA 94612
Also good are the short ribs, braised lamb cheeks and glazed black cod (think small plate portions for sharing).
The only dud so far for me was their original mac & "cheese" as in where's the cheese? Too much like stove-top cooked vs oven-baked. The most recent version is cheeseless.
Thanks for the report...I'm always looking for new places to try when heading to Oakland for shows at the Fox/Paramount.
