Grand Av Oakland Bar & Restaurant Scene Picks Up In 2013



The Grand Avenue Bar & Restaurant scene has really picked up in 2013. The latest addition, Penrose, opens today with a beer party at 6 PM at 3311 Grand. That's next to Monkey Road Cafe and on the opposite of it, but the same side of the street, there's The Alley.

Across the street is The Boot and Shoe Restaurant, The Lucky Lounge, Connie's (awesome burritos), Ordinaire (a new wine bar), Samurai Sushi, and past the Boot and Shoe there's iKaros, Bankok Palace, and Neecha Thai.

On the other side of Grand from Neecha Thai is Yang Chow Restaurant (which delivers good chinese food).

If you want great deep dish pizza, then head up Grand past Elwood to The Star.

If you want the best Vietnamese Food there's Miss Saigon, on the same side of the street as The Alley, and next to Smitty's Bar.

There are even more great eateries like Grand Lake Terrace, and Camino even further up Grand, too.

What's interesting is that for all the talk about Oakland's economy, all of the existing restaurants have been open for a while, and Penrose, Ordinaire, iKaros, and Boot and Shoe are new.

Try all of them. You can travel the food World without leaving Oakland!
