El Gusano

As the sister restaurant of San Francisco's ever-popular Tropisueño, El Gusano pairs its sibling's devotion to traditional Mexican recipes with the same upscale charm as its posh Old Oakland surrounding. By day, the restaurant acts as a taqueria, dispensing tacos, burritos, and pambazos to hungry lunchtime crowds. Like someone who's been bitten by a werewolf maitre d', though, El Gusano morphs into a full-service restaurant every evening, casting warm, inviting light on tables filled with dishes such as their signature mole poblano. Nighttime is also the domain of the restaurant's bartenders, who shake up hand-crafted margaritas and specialty drinks from their extensive of tequilas and mezcals.
