A bunch of Oakland restaurants, including the likes of Miss Ollie’s, Camino, B-Side BBQ, and Flora will be offering prix-fixe menus of $20, $30, or $40. The menus will be available at lunch and dinner, depending on the restaurant—check here for details, and be sure to contact the restaurants individually for reservations.
In addition to having the opportunity to check out some East Bay stars, you can also head to the Food & Beverage History Panel event on Friday January 18th from 3pm-5pm, which kicks off the week. Richard Walker of UC Berkeley will be offering a presentation, while leaders in the East Bay food scene will be on hand to talk about the rich local culinary history.
