This jazzy, planked-wood Oakland cafe is one of the Bay Areas coolest hangouts. The cuisine (hearty American fare with a few Mediterranean accents) isnt always up to the setting, but the luscious pork shank with figs and apricots, the potato gratin with Fiscalini cheddar, and a pot de crème touched with cinnamon are delectable.
