Top Hatters is located in a suburban pocket right off I-580 in San Leandro, and it’s a destination restaurant you should have high on your hit list. This place has a menu best described as “whatever’s in season,” and it’s filled with so many creative hits. The savory donut is decadent, with scallion, bacon, and parmesan mash inside. The roasted cauliflower and crispy maitake mushrooms are showered with shoestring sweet potatoes. And the slow roasted brisket with wine-soaked grapes is one of the most tender briskets to land on our table ever. By the time one of the large plates arrive, like the impressive whole-grilled trout with nuoc cham, fruit slices, and herbs, you’ll have realized this: Top Hatters (and their gorgeous patio) is where you want to be for date nights, family dinners, birthdays, and everything in between.

Ramen Shop in Rockridge does a very California (and a very good) take on ramen.
