Food to go, drink while you wait (Oakland/Berkeley)

I am bored of my usual haunts and need some ideas of places to pick up dinner to go, but where there is a bar so I can have a class of wine and read a bit while waiting for the food. For example, Soi4 in Rockridge is my standby, but I need other ideas. Any thoughts? I am open to much of Oakland and Berkeley.

Great China. Great wines at more than reasonable prices by the glass. Usually there’s at least one seat at the bar.


I see a fair number of people getting a drink at the Stella Nonna bar while waiting for their take out dinner.
