Where we've featured it
“The cocktail lounge in Downtown Oakland opened a year ago, shut down when the pandemic hit, and recently returned, which means... time to finally enjoy their lush, lounge-y vibes and experience one of the most memorable evenings you’ll have in awhile. A night here will include choosing one - or several - of their impressive, well-made cocktails: passion fruit palomas, mojitos, Mai Tais, and aguardiente with apricot, honey, and lime. It will also feature plenty of tapas-style small plates reflecting the flavors of the Afro-Caribbean diaspora - incredible plantains stuffed with Impossible meat ragu and olives on top of a creamy avocado purée; gulf shrimp with a rich garlic and nit’ir qibe-spiced butter sauce; and crispy beef empanadas. Sobre Mesa inside is a tropical escape with plants and plush booths. And out on the sidewalk patio, live music will keep the good time going into the night - or, at least, until your table’s time limit is up. When you head here, be sure to make a reservation in advance.”
