In downtown Oakland, Sobre Mesa creates an urban neighborhood paradise with lush, tropical greenery, creative cocktails, and Afro-Latino small plates, an homage to Chef (and former Top Chef contestant) Nelson German’s Dominican roots and African ancestry. Then, DAMNFiNE pizza heats up San Francisco’s Outer Sunset with wood-fired pizzas, Italian spritzes, and other “damn fine” dishes. Finally, in Alameda, Spinning Bones takes California-style rotisserie for a spin. Specializing in quality roasted meats — poultry, pork, and beef — the menu is simple but delicious, serving up succulent, slow-cooked, spit-roasted deliciousness. Reporter Cecilia Phillips closes out this week's episode with a trip to San Jose to check out Tasty Mob Market, a hip, new permanent food truck spot.
