ABOUT THE TOUR
$110 per person (+$2 booking fee)
Oakland’s exploding food scene is making headlines as one of the top travel destinations in the country, and the Uptown neighborhood is the epicenter of the action. Its best restaurants, cafes, and bars in this arts-oriented district have helped earn its acclaim as America’s Best Neighborhood. Even if you’re an SF Bay Area local, you will learn about an evolving food and arts neighborhood you’ve not yet had the pleasure to meet.
Guests will learn about the neighborhood’s historic treasures, including the Fox and Paramount theaters, as well as recent additions to the nightlife and gallery landscape as you sample tastes and craft cocktails from some of the newest and most notable food artisans in the Bay Area. Note that the stops on this tour are fairly spread out. Be sure to wear your walking shoes!
Start your jaunt with empandas and house-made craft beer at Woods Bar & Brewery, followed by Calavera's tacos on handmade heirloom corn tortillas, then wrap your own hand rolls at Itani Ramen. Sample chocolate-covered bars from Sweet Bar Bakery (owned by Michael Jackson’s former personal chef) and award-winning Two Mile Wines. Round out the tour with Michelin-star chef Daniel Patterson’s Plum Bar.
