Mockingbird - Oakland
In the former Hibiscus space.
Tried it for lunch the other day. I really enjoyed everything we had. Butter lettuce salad was a good sized portion and everything worked. The lettuce was fresh and crisp, ruby red grapefruit, avocado, scallion. Not overdressed, really refreshing. Also tried the hot ham and cheese and the chicken tacos. Both were excellent and the house made potato chips were fabulous. It's obvious they are using fresh quality ingredients as the flavors were not overworked and the ingredients popped. I would definitely go back and now want to try dinner.

We had an amazing dinner at Mockingbird a few months ago-I still dream about the marrow-vinegarette that dressed the arugula salad with a delicious steak. All our dishes were delicious and the service could not have been more attentive. All this for a really reasonable price. Go. Now.
