Stanford's Restaurant & Bar stays close to home, even as it explores and combines the diverse flavors of the U.S.. Its chefs purchase as many ingredients as possible from local farmers. The results: dishes such as buttermilk fried chicken with country sausage gravy and honey mustard glaze, and walnut crusted brie with house-made seasonal preserves. As for their combinations, the chefs don't believe land and sea need to remain separate?just look at their prime rib and grilled salmon with parmesan garlic mashed potatoes, seasonal vegetables, and Dave's horseradish sauce. Both surf and turf tend to spend a lot of time together atop the kitchen's wood-fired grill, too, soaking up the smokey flavor of the smoldering logs while coming to realize there aren't so many differences between them after all.
When Skates on the Bay says its seating is on the water, it really means it. The restaurant juts out from the shore and extends on stilts into the bay, its floor-to-ceiling windows framing a landscape of sun, sea, and sailboats gracefully toward the marina or away from sea monsters' mouths.
Naturally, Skates' chefs specialize in local seafood. Alongside classics such as fresh oysters on the half shell and chowder made with Pacific Northwest clams, the chefs get creative. Here, for instance, nigiri might mean Applewood-perfumed scallops with smoked sea salt, or flame-charred halibut with shredded daikon. The menu also includes land-based options, such as char-grilled pork chops stuffed with Bing cherries and wild mushroom and grilled filet medallions oscar style, served with asparagus and crab with b?arnaise sauce
Teppanyaki chefs twirl their knives and ignite towers of flame while cooking meals tableside inside Hana Japan Steak & Seafood. They slice new york steaks, chicken, and salmon and toss scallops onto the grill alongside chopped veggies and mounds of rice, all without ruffling their tomato-red toques. Each hibachi dinner comes with a shrimp appetizer, a bowl of soup, and a salad with organic Hana dressing imported from Japan.
The walls at Currylicious exude the same orange and yellow hues as saffron and turmeric, which flavor its traditional Indian dishes. Appetizers include hearty veggie samosas and the kachumar salad, an intermingling of fresh garden veggies, herbs, and lime juice. Entrees such as chicken shahi korma and lamb karahi cool down spice with infusions of yogurt sauce and side helpings of naan. During pleasant weather, diners can sit outside, where they take in Oakland’s scenic landscape, or season their meals with crushed sunshine.
Kincaid's puts an upscale spin on classic American dining. The kitchen's signature prime rib, for instance, is slow-roasted under rock salt to ensure a tender texture and perfect crust. Lobster tails are served with blistered lemon, and meatloaf arrives wrapped in savory bacon. Along with these mainstays, seasonal specialties showcase local meats and produce. Kincaid's whips up hearty plates for brunch, lunch, dinner, and second dinner, with different delectable options served at each meal.
Bites can be paired with handcrafted cocktails, draft beers, or glasses of wine?Kincaid's serves up nearly 30 red and white wines by the glass, many of which hail from California, Oregon, and Washington. The accompanying bottle list features dozens of additional selections from vineyards near and far.
