Greater East Bay
The Cooperage 32 Lafayette Circle, (925) 298-5915. L-D daily. This bustling spot features an expansive open interior with several dining areas--including a large heated patio and a large bar area. Comfort food and vintage cocktails are staples on the relatively small, regularly changing menu--think deviled eggs with bacon, mac’n cheese, Brown Derby salad (roasted rotisserie chicken, bacon, blue cheese, avocado, tomato, egg), and a house burger made with a custom grind of short rib, sirloin, and brisket (and served with a side of either fries in a sweet little bag or a delicious Caesar salad). Burrata with cherry tomatoes and Petaluma brick chicken are also popular. Well-executed drinks include a gin and tonic enhanced with floating flowers and juniper berries, a colorful and spicey blood-orange margarita, and a mix of scotch and amaretto called The Godfather.
