  • Bijou Restaurant & Bar
    Executive Chef Rodrigo Ceden?o sharpened his knife skills and his palate across California, picking up technical know-how at Collins College of Hospitality Management before training under chefs at Vu Restaurant and RN74 in San Francisco. Today he lets his know-how blossom and wander in the kitchen of Bijou Restaurant & Bar, blending his French and modern cuisine training with the flavors found in northern California's seasonal organic ingredients. From his pans and cutting boards spring forth a rotating selection of seasonal specialties with distinct flavor profiles, such as butternut squash risotto with brown butter and diver scallops served with blistered grapes. To complement such an aesthetically poignant dining experience, the space itself?designed by DesignPlus's Pia Thomas?remains sleek and focused. The centerpiece is the bar, which glows a dreamy, iridescent amber that's complemented by ring chandeliers and absorbed by Italian leather chairs, a lounge area's plush velvet cushions, and tabletop black holes.

  • Frodo Joe's Coffee and Tea
    Frodo Joe’s Coffee and Tea: A User’s Guide Iced Coffee | Sweet & Savory Crepes | Gourmet Teas | Cozy Outdoor Seating Sample Menu Entree: savory California crepe with turkey, tomato, and avocado Side: greek salad Dessert: orange, peach, banana crepe with orange sauce Where to Sit: There’s no host at the front to assign tables to guests, so it’s best to grab the first open table you see. Weather and crowds permitting, the relatively few chairs spaced along the sidewalk out front also make a nice place to enjoy a coffee and crepe. When to Go: Diners report that the establishment can get very crowded, especially on weekends. The best strategy of when to go is “early.” Expect a 15- to 20-minute wait, even on to-go orders. Fun Facts In the iced coffee drinks, the ice cubes themselves are made of coffee. It keeps drinks cool and preserves the flavor. The titular Frodo is not a hobbit, but, in fact, a pug, and something of a shop mascot. If You Can’t Make It, Try This: Hippies Brew (21988 Foothill Blvd Hayward, CA), which also serves up gourmet coffee drinks and unique breakfast specialities, including an honest-to-goodness french toast sandwich.
