If Ramona is a supermodel, Alameda is the girl next door. It’s smaller and a little more casual, although just like Ramona, it looks great inside. It’s also equally appropriate for food or drinks. So stop by if you have to meet someone but aren’t sure if you’re eating. Grab a seat at the U-shaped bar in the middle of the room, or claim a table up front if you’re bringing a date. (This is a great place for that.)
