Chowhound just did a mini tour of Oakland. Check out the videos/stories:

Oakland - CHOW Tour: Handmade - Food News - CHOW

I am behind the times, I have only been to the following:
Scream
Bakesale Betty
Brown Sugar Kitchen
Trappist
Cafe Colucci

I still haven't made it to Pizzaiola (But I have been to Boot and Shoe), Sidebar, Plum, Nieves Cinco de Mayo, Black and Silver Lao Food and Burgers, taco crawl in Fruitvale, Commonwealth, or a Taste of Denmark.

Interesting stuff.

Is that Buttercup associated with the one at Jack London and the one that used to be in Elmwood in Berkeley?

Marzano = Hudson in Rockridge.

The Oakland restaurant grows by 20% every week. It is hard to keep up.

One of my favorite restaurants in all of Oakland.

Lydia is the chef - really, really great.

Sometimes I just go in for the sweet tea and 3 or 4 orders of the spicy fried okra, but their actual entrees are really, really good too.

Sounds awesome.

That building has been reincarnated so many times-every time the food has been spectacular, and interestingly, soul food.

I remember when I was a wee lad, it was a dance club. You would drive by and see people dancing inside, disco ball and all. LOL.
