4039 Piedmont Ave.
César Latino
Oakland, CA, 94611, United States
TEL: (510) 985-1200
TEL: (510) 406-5928

A busy spot for cocktails and tapas, Cesar has a happy hour that runs both before and after dinnertime. Large double doors open between the outside patio and dining room, which is designed with a central bar, blonde woods, simple furnishings, and red walls. The tapas dishes have a Spanish and Mexican flare. Share calamari with Spanish mojo picon—a garlic and red pepper sauce—or a plate of nachos topped with carne asada (grilled beef), fresh salsa, guacamole, beans, and Oaxacan cheese. For dessert, dip fritter-like churros in a small cup of thick chocolate.

Insider Tip:

Get a cone of Original Rocky Road ice cream at Fenton's Creamery, which first opened in 1894 and moved to Piedmont Avenue in 1961.
