2214 BroadwayOakland, CA
(510) 444-7586

Came here for a party of 4 on a Friday night. It was dim, busy and noisy. The restaurant has a open kitchen, thus the night was filled with smell of grease.
My friends and I started with the charred carrot veloute, it was creamy and the taste was unique. The soup was very sweet though, totally not expecting it. We also had the plum charcuterie. It was assorted meat platter with really tasty meat and pickled carrots. I highly recommend the beet boudin noir. It was crispy and so, so flavorful!

Plum Charcuterie
For entree, I had the sturgeon in place of the halibut, and it was pretty good. It was cooked to a crispy outter and soft inner perfection, with a side of housemade buttermilk tartare-liked sauce. I had a bite of the pork belly, and it was pretty rough and salty, and was not tender at all.

Columbia River Sturgeon
For dessert, we had the fruit parfait and it was very unique and delicoius. Instead of it being like yogurt topped with fruits, it was presented like a sliced cake.
The meal was pretty good overall. But service was a little terrible. Our waiter didn't really come and check on us, and didn't really fill our water. Another waitress had to fill it while he was busy chatting with other people. Also, it took forever to get our check and change.  I don't know if I'll go back.
