A Cote - Oakland

This was a great meal. Jeff Berlin, the manager, said they were surprised by how many Bulgarians showed up.

Also had the soup. Highlights were the four kinds of house-made sausages and the flatbread. Still working on the leftovers!

That looks really good. I miss that place

New item, khachapuri adjaruli, good but way bigger than ones I’ve had at Georgian restaurants, a lot more food than A Cote’s usual flatbreads.

French onion soup with beef and veal broth was classic and good, though I prefer Zut’s. Papardelle with short rib sugo and duck confit with lentils were both excellent and I think larger portions than previously. Espresso tiramisu was good though I prefer Daytrip’s.

Great and unusual selection of wines as usual.

Lighting needs maintenance, the bulb in the spot aimed at our table was burned out and the whole row of spots intermittently went out.
