A bunch of friends and I tried Haven the week they opened and we were blown away by the subtle mix of flavors, unique drinks and attentive customer service. Standouts from the chef's tasting menu were the amazing brussel sprouts, little gem salad, smoked pasta and shepherd's pie. It's time for the group to experience this new eatery that's breathing new life into the Jack London Square restaurant scene.
"Located in Oakland’s Jack London Square, Haven is the third restaurant from the Daniel Patterson Group (Plum in Oakland & Coi in SF). Serving new Californian cuisine from Executive Chef Kim Alter, the menu features craveable, technique-driven food including whole animal and vegetable preparations, shareable plates, and desserts-for-two from Pastry Chef Matt Tinder. The community-minded space evokes a sense of comfort and warmth while simultaneously providing a unique and personal dining experience including hand-crafted cocktails from the best local mixologists."
Event Details: In order to try as many dishes as possible, we'll order the chef's tasting menu which includes 3-4 appetizers and 4-5 entrees. The cost is $65 per person. Please carefully review the entire menu before RSVPing. If you have food allergies or are a discriminating diner, this event is probably not for you.
