    It’s true: There is no East Bay hood quite as hot as Uptown Oakland. It alone is reason enough to book it across the Bay Bridge, stat. With a growing flurry of top-notch restaurants, shops, and even a noticeable callout from The New York Times, this enclave is seemingly unstoppable. So, we figured we’d stop yapping about it and actually show you the haunts that are making such a major splash.

    From Daniel Patterson’s (of Coi fame) swanky restaurant Plum to the brand-new Danish-leaning boutique Owl-N-Wood, tour the joints that have us scurrying over from S.F. in a flash. The most convenient part? They are legitimately a hop and a skip away. So, you can bounce off BART and instantly begin exploring! What are you waiting for? Your across-the-bridge journey awaits.
