Resulting is a kaleidoscope of top-flight eateries, big on ethnic diversity, and even bigger on adventure. Lois the Pie Queen, among Oakland's oldest restaurants, serves a signature Reggie Jackson, with eggs, grits, biscuits and pork chops.

Milano's is known for California-influenced specialties including risottos, wood-oven pizza and polenta with quail. For Aztec cuisine, El Huarache Azteca dishes up mole poplano, huaraches and hacoyos from Toluca and sweets and gorditas from Que Retaro. For Eritrean and Ethiopian cuisine, Asmara specializes in tenderloin tips with awaze dip and lamb in berbere sauce. Sabina Indian Cuisine serves clay-pot dishes and curries.
