Holy opening of doors, Oaklavores~!
In the the last 24 hours the lines have caught fire with news of restaurants opening in Oakland!!
Check em out!!
Disco Volante Fever
Thanks to Lady Tablehopper Marcia G. we got filled in on the newest Uptown joint to rock Oakland, Late night Oaklavores look out!!
The restaurant will feature live music, and will serve until midnight. The kitchen is headed by Douglas Bernstein (formerly of Eccolo, Bacar, and Farallon)- Look for local, seasonal, sustainable cuisine grounded in French technique, with nothing over $20, and the wine list is by consulting sommelier Stephen Lebord. Expect lunch Mon-Fri, and dinner daily until 1am weekdays and 2am on weekends.
347 14th St. at Webster.
Caña has just posted a storefront sign over the entrances to their combined cabaret/Cuban restaurant 3 doors down from the old Kwik Way by the Lake. Expect sidewalk seating for eating and dancing under the stars and sun! Speaking of the Kwik Way…
Kwik Way a la Retro
Gary Rizzo (of Somerset on College) plans to install a retro burger stand where the Kwik Way stood, albeit with two important distinctions to appease the neighborhood: there will be outdoor seating and there will not be a drive-through. Redecorating continue- more news to come!
From L’amyx to LinJia…
Marcia Lam plans to re-open L’amyx tea bar as a family restaurant to be called Lin Jia Asian Kitchen. Fun video on how to say it here.

More Artisan Burgers!
An artisan Burger joint allegedly named “The Flip Side” is going into the former Adam’s Burger space, with plans to include outdoor seating out front! It’s a big remodel, so expect the opening in some time…

Whew, I’m excited about all the outdoor planning!! In the meantime, please support your local businesses- Merritt Bakery is back!! Please do go by and welcome back to the old institution and its loyal employees!!
