Chef Daniel Patterson’s casual, East Bay dining endeavor, Plum, is a definite do on our Uptown Oakland guide. The inviting and immaculately designed space is relaxed, the food is progressive, and the staff is receptive and helpful. With a small, plant-centric and ever-changing menu, Plum delights across-the-bridge visitors and hungry Oaklandites alike. If you have time before you’re seated, hit up Plum Bar next door for a sweet libation prior to chowing down.
Plum, 2214 Broadway Street (between Franklin and Grand avenues), Oakland; 510-444-7586.
