America's Coolest New Diners

America's Coolest New Diners: Hopscotch

Aubrie Pick

Hopscotch, Oakland, CA

New to Oakland’s burgeoning Uptown District, Hopscotch reinterprets classic American dishes using East Bay ingredients and a Japanese touch courtesy of chef and co-owner Kyle Itani (of Yoshi’s in San Francisco and New York’s The Meatball Shop). On the menu: a braised pork belly hash with slow-cooked onsen eggs and a yuzu meringue pie to be washed down with local beers, wines, and small-batch spirits. As for the interiors, between the Midcentury Modern Carrara marble bar and the checkerboard cork floors, you’ll feel like you’re eating in a diner circa 1950.

Don’t Miss: Duck-fat potato chips with miso dip.
