You drank too many mezcal margaritas last night in Uptown Oakland, and now you’re hungover - and wondering why your friend has so many grainy iPhone videos of you rapping along to “Blow the Whistle.” Time to go to Hopscotch. This upscale diner does Japanese-inspired takes on classic American dishes - soba biscuits, tonkatsu sandwiches, and braised pork belly benedict with jidori eggs. Brunch here won’t erase those videos of you screaming Too Short’s favorite word, but it will make you feel a lot better.
