Dish Derby is a fun way to explore foodie-friendly neighborhoods such as Piedmont Ave, Solano Ave, Oakland's Uptown, JLS, the Gourmet Ghetto, Hayes Valley, the Mission, the Embarcadero, etc.. For this month's dish derby, we'll head over to mile-long Solano Avenue for some good eats. ** RSVPs open 2 weeks beforehand **
We'll sample appetizers, entrees and desserts at three different restaurants within walking distance of one another. Here's the schedule for the evening (I've built in time for cashing out & strolling):
Sweet Basil has a fantastic happy hour during which appetizers are $5, beer is $3 and wine is $5; Fonda serves beer & wine in addition to great cocktails. The entree choices at Fonda are quite affordable, and the desserts at Britt-Marie's are mouth-watering.
