What can we say — if you’re ready to savor some of the best cocktails in the Bay, come here. Not only is the charming Art Deco building a sight to see, but the sips and the chow are seriously and meticulously crafted (and not to mention lauded). For booze, we’re partial to The Fizz, but you really can’t go wrong with whatever you choose to order. It’s a great post-concert stop (it’s across the street from The Fox Theatre), and if you have the time, try the caramel pudding. Nom.
Flora Restaurant And Bar, 1900 Telegraph Avenue (at 19th Street), Oakland; 510-286-0100.
