    Nice that they're continuing to fawn over Daniel Patterson. Too bad their list isn't more imaginative and affordable.

      There goes the neighborhood. I happen to be someone who liked "once-gritty Oakland."

        Mostly it still is, once you walk a couple of blocks from Uptown or Piedmont Ave. or any of the other more or less gentrified bits.

          Don't worry. Hardly anything good is mentioned. Nothing about korean food, Vietnamese, Ethiopian, Gelato, BarLata, lanesplitter, the trappist, Kingfisher, Mua, Boot and Shoe, Sidebar, Luka's. They're sending everyone to Everett and Jones, A Cote, Oliveto, the Claremont, and Lake Chalet. Although - a nice reminder of how good O Chame is.

            Actually, the only restaurants mentioned in that article are Commis, Hawker Fare, Plum, Plum Bar, and Haven. The other two recent articles also mentioned Guest Chef, Bar Dogwood, Cafe Van Kleef, Make Westing, Rudy's Can't Fail, and Bar 355.
