Chef Clive opened Sweet Fingers as an homage to his grandmother, Aunt Lu, who taught him about food, hospitality, and perseverance. He spent his early years in Jamaica learning recipes and life lessons in her kitchen after she took over her husband's fruit-selling business following his death. Building on that robust culinary education and inspired start, Clive moved to New York City at age 18 and went on to graduate from culinary school.

Eventually he worked his way up to the role of supervising chef during a 10-year career at the Marriott hotel. But his career’s turning point came in 2003, when he relocated to California and met the woman who would become his wife. That’s when the pair founded Sweet Fingers, giving locals a bar and eatery that now shines a light on Aunt Lu's recipes and the love she taught Clive to cook with.

By all accounts, Chef Clive has done his grandmother proud. Matthew Stafford of the East Bay Express praised the "juicy" jerk chicken and "creamy" fried plantains, adding that "the escovitch-style snapper, curry goat, brown stew chicken, and braised oxtail are uniformly rich, spiky, and tantalizing." Inside, the yellow and royal blue walls boast Jamaican flags and pictures of the island, and the bar serves a large assortment of cocktailsthat are no less colorful. Patrons also flock to the cozy spot for entertainment that includes live reggae, as well as open-mic nights filled with poetry and music, which often consists of impromptu compositions about intense feelings for the food.

After sharing the basketball court with Wilt Chamberlain and Guy Rodgers while playing for the San Francisco Warriors, Al Attles became the head coach in the 1970s—one of the first African American coaches in the NBA—leading the team to a 1975 championship. His current endeavor, which he began in 1995, pleases crowds in a different way with Al Attles' California Cheese Steaks, crafted in an authentic Philly style similar to those from his native East Coast. Inside the restaurant, sports memorabilia adorns the walls and the menu with items named after athletes including the Mully sandwich, named after Chris Mullin, and the Destroyer burger, christened with Al’s own nickname. Cooks grill the chopped steak with sliced cheese, in addition to crafting more health-conscious fare such brown rice bowls packed with vegetables, grilled Alaskan salmon, and miniature food pyramids

Although Steve Cruz was born in the Philippines and James Sito was born in China, their paths crossed and forever intertwined in Oakland. There, more than two decades ago, they discovered a shared interest in the minutiae and endless variety of the culinary industry. Today, at San Leandro's CreAsian Bistro, Steve spends much of his time getting to know customers in the dining room while James experiments with powerful flavors, creative presentations, and spicy pyrotechnics in the kitchen.

James and his staff use fresh ingredients to fuse Chinese, American, Thai, and Japanese flavors into an eclectic menu. They plate up tempura vegetables, five-spice duck, seared ahi tuna, and wasabi-coated steak—as well as vegan and vegetarian dishes upon request—to create edible works of art. Much like a group of snowmen partying in a hot tub, the food's flavors dissolve and mix together with inventive cocktails and international and local wines from such vineyards as Nottingham Cellars. Also a strong supporter of the local community, CreAsian Bistro donates 10% of its sales on the first Wednesday of each month to the nonprofit San Leandro Education Foundation, which improves educational opportunities for local children.

The Englander Sports Pub & Restaurant squeezes the entirety of the British Isles into its eatery—or so it would seem after seeing the 80 draft beers, plates of bangers 'n' mash and lightly fried fish, and the iconic red phone booth right outside the door. A lengthy menu disproves the myth that British food isn't real with choices such as hearty pot pies and 16 burgers topped with avocado, blue cheese, and house-made chili. To wash down the meaty fare, bartenders kick open the kegs and fill tall glasses with classic British ales and domestic beers that visitors savor from the dining room’s dark-wood furnishings or on the umbrella-shaded patio. Throughout the eatery, 21 TVs entertain the senses not involved in the task of chewing or sipping, and during the week, The Englander hosts open-mike nights, live music, and live viewings of sporting events that give visitors an excuse to hoist their brews in triumph.
