The latest coast-to-coast restaurant trend has chefs reimagining America’s first fast-food restaurant: the diner.

Hopscotch, Oakland, CA

10 of 10

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.
