Oakland: Wood Tavern; restaurant review

880 South

Wood Tavern  6317 College Ave./63rd St., Rockridge, (510) 654-660.  L M-Sat, D daily; $$-$$$. 

Operating in one room with tall ceilings and large windows that slide open to the sidewalk on warm days, this neighborhood brasserie has an ever-changing menu.

At lunch, I love the creative soups--delicious braised pork-red lentil, chilled watercress-fennel--and sandwiches--hot pastrami with Emmentaler cheese and Dijon-horseradish dressing, fried green tomato, BLT with heirloom tomatoes and thick-cut bacon.

The Niman Ranch burger on a La Farine Baguette with fries is always a good choice, and don’t miss burrata with peaches when it is available.

The house bread--Acme wheat levain and walnut levain--is complimentary, but you must request it. The restaurant is surrounded by a foodie neighborhood.  Allow time to shop.
