The Grand Lake Neighborhood
Or around the world in three blocks. Around Oakland’s famous Grand Lake Theater, you’ll find an epicurean tour of the world otherwise known as the Grand Lake neighborhood.
There are over 150 restaurants of every international taste and persuasion in a three to four block radius. Some have Chez Panisse roots. This is also home to the East Bay’s and perhaps the Bay Area’s most happening Farmer’s market every Saturday – with food, music and entertainment for all.
On top of that, there’s an original piano bar called The Alley where people still sing their hearts out. A neighborhood book store called Walden Books still sells books. And, of course, one of the original Art Deco Theaters of the West Coast...the Grand Lake Theater. What’s amazing is you have a dose of the best of national chains …. Peets, Starbucks, Gap and Trader Joes … side by side with Oakland originals, revivals and rising star chefs.
Try Camino on Grand. Chez Panisse without Alice Waters. Farm to table food by a Chez Panisse alum. The Grand Tavern -- an English pub with a 1930’s living room environment. Boot and Shoe Service -- again a salute to Chez Panisse and the same thin crust pizza of Pizzaiolo. Sidebar – with a 5-star burger and locovore cocktails. Or any of about 20-0 others, including the requisite Greek, Japanese, Thai, Chinese and Mexican.
It’s original Oakland and new Oakland all rolled into one walking neighborhood and all centered around the Grand Dame of them all, the Grand Lake Theater.
