If I like Plum in Oakland, another place to try...

I'll be passing through Oakland mid-week for a day, with a chance to eat lunch and/or a late-night (10pm or later) dinner.

Any other places to recommend?

I might hit Plum again, but looking for other great experiences like that. Note that I like innovative cuisine, but I also love interesting ethnic food, and can go from hole-in-the-wall on up. Eating solo, so not looking for anything too fancy or expensive - and bonus points if there's a chef's counter.

    Maybe Wood Tavern for lunch.

    Some Ethiopian, Korean, and Chinese places are open late on weeknights. Adesso's open until midnight. Spices!3 until 11.

    Not at Thursday? A few more places are open later that night.

      Thanks. Wood Tavern looks fairly interesting. Looking forward to any other ideas, too.

        Hawker Fare. But they aren't open late.

          Thanks. I enjoyed a nice meal at Hawker Fare. Pork belly was delicious, and even the rice was well done.
