eat like a chef The Squeaky Bean’s take on a French dish called potage crécy. OAKLAND Tanya Holland leads you to Oaktown’s authentic global eats. Artful edibles entice Jennifer Jasinski. “Here you don’t have to dress up to have a fine-dining experience. Below are three of my favorite spots for creative, chef-driven food served in an atmosphere that’s not stuffy at all.” Fruition “The chef, Alex Seidel, grew up in Wisconsin. He runs a farm 45 minutes south of the city, where he raises milking sheep and makes his own cheese. The space is small and cozy, with red walls and candles on the tables. I love the pasta carbonara. It’s cavatelli with peas underneath a piece of house-cured pork belly, topped with a poached egg.” 1313 E. SIXTH AVE.; FRUITION RESTAURANT.COM The Squeaky Bean “They have bare wood tables and chandeliers made of old spoons. Their menu changes all the time, but one of the best dishes I’ve ever had there is called Choked Out. It’s sunchoke and artichoke prepared several different ways and beautifully presented.

She won the 2013 James Beard Award for Best Chef: Southwest. “A lot of entrepreneurialminded people are discovering how open and diverse Oakland really is. They’re cooking the cuisine of their heritage here, and they’re doing it with super fresh, high-quality ingredients.” Hawker Fare “James Syhabout, who was born in Thailand and has an amazing Michelin-starred restaurant in Oakland called Commis, opened this Asian street food café two years ago. I love the satay beef short ribs— they’re marinated in coconut milk and spices then covered in peanut sauce, so they’re sweet and savory.” 2300 WEBSTER Montreal, where the owner, Blake Joffe, has roots. The bagels are cooked in a woodfired oven, and Blake and his girlfriend, Amy Remsen, mix their own cream cheese spreads. They also do this really great fried-chicken bagel sandwich with beet slaw.” 3838 TELEGRAPH AVE.; BEAUTYSBAGEL SHOP.COM ST.; HAWKERFARE.COM Juhu Beach Club Beauty’s Bagel Shop “This place just opened in March.
