North Oakland's Charming New Gourmet Ghetto

Posted By on Mon, Dec 31, 2007 at 9:00 AM


Attention "young urbanists," if you haven't already heard, Oakland's Temescal neighborhood is the next best place to gentrify if you want to give San Francisco the slip. Dubbed "Gourmet Ghetto" in the Wall Street Journal, a cluster of news restaurants around Telegraph Avenue and 51st Street -- many of them opened by Chez Panisse alumni -- are generating wafts of "culinary movement" buzz. Among the fledgling eateries are Bakesale Betty, Pizzaiolo, La Calaca Loca and Cafe Mariposa.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
