Guten Morgen, East Bay! Have you kicked off your Oktoberfest celebrations yet? Whatever your answer, we've got a party happening tonight, plus two new coffee options for recovery purposes. 

Silicon Valley Eats: Seasonal French, Cheffy Hot Dogs, and Fests Galore

It’s a busy week for eating down in the South Bay, with a Bacon and Brew Fest in the works, chef-inspired hot dogs for eating, and destination-worthy French food to seek out.

Neighborhood Guide: What To Do In North Beach

Beyond the throngs of tourists and kitschy Italian restaurants hides the real North Beach, a bastion of hidden alleyway spots and Beat-laced history. Whether you're sipping a killer cocktail or searching for a poetry tome, keep your eyes—and your mind—wide open when exploring this history-laden neighborhood gem. 

Oakland Eats: Plum Bar Expands, a New Brewery, & a Scandalous Alameda Speakeasy

This week in East Bay restaurant news is all about the booze — or, the bar scene, rather. From the expansion of an already popular bar concept to a scandalous speakeasy, you now have even more options for good drinking (and eating) on this side of the Bay.

Check Out Pazzo Marco Creamery For the Best Gelato on the North Coast

Marco Moramarco is redefining the “start up” concept in a delicious way. After working as a software engineer in Silicon Valley for 20 years, Moramarco and his partner Paul Vierra moved up to Gualala, California on the Sonoma-Mendocino Coast. A neighbor with an excess of goat’s milk and a Williams-Sonoma gelato machine helped Moramarco discover his new calling— creating artisanal gelato from scratch.

Silicon Valley Eats: A Delfina-Approved Pig Roast in Burlingame

It's a slow week for restaurant openings in the South Bay, but don't be discouraged, avid eaters! There's a slew of openings on the horizon; take this opportunity to regroup and revisit some favorites. Oh, and there's a Burlingame block party that you are not going to want to miss.

Oakland Eats: Wine, Seafood, and a New Cafe Destination

You know what you need to kick this Labor Day weekend off right? Wine, and lots of it! Pair that with delicious local seafood and a killer cafe for work and play and you've got the makings of this week's East Bay openings.

Caribbean Cuisine, Jamaican Us Crazy for More

Upon returning to San Francisco from a jaunt to the East Coast, the distinct lack of Caribbean cuisine may have you down, mon. Compared with New York, SF’s island offerings have been historically scant, a notable paucity in our gastro-nomically rich and diverse city.

Silicon Valley Eats: Michael Mina in Santa Clara & The Grill House in Redwood Shores

Fire it up, South Bay — this week's openings are all about the grill, and the delicious meaty (and vegetarian!) goodness that comes with it. Plus, authentic Thai food and all-you-can-eat sushi, for good measure.

Oakland Eats: Bento Boxes, Vegan Eats, and a Tiki Cocktail Destination

Start revving your eating engines, East Bay — this week's openings are looking delicious. Where to start? How about kicking things off with a celebratory drink?
