It's been an exciting year for the Oakland restaurant scene.

While some of our favorite restaurants were forced to shutter in San Francisco and Berkeley due to rising rents and dwindling business, new restaurants have continued to pop up all over The Town. Just in time for the new year, we reveal The Big Eat Oakland 2017, 100 BRAND NEW dishes to try in Oakland this year. That's right, all 100 items are new to the list this year. Enjoy!
