Check out 3000 Broadway, across the street from Oakland Grocery Outlet and near Summit Hospital. They did a good job of fixing up the space (former showroom or auto repair shop?) with a black and metal industrial look. It seems to be begging for a bigger lunch trade. It's in the Broadway/Valdez district that Oakland wants to perk up after many of the auto dealerships on that mile-stretch south of the 580 freeway have left. I had some oysters there a few months ago that were fresh and came with 2 sauces ( horseradish and a hot sauce?). Service was friendly and if I had been hungrier would have ordered the garlic noodles.
