Belgium. In fact, we've taken to calling our style of cuisine "California Brasserie," which basically means that we've taken traditional French & Belgian brasserie dishes such as oysters, mussels, frites , sausages and cured meats, and put them together in a way that reflects the culinary sensibilities of the Bay Area. Although we are not a vegetarian restaurant, we do strive to be inclusive. Our menu will always have some vegetarian options.

I use to go on Mondays for three $1 oysters, but I had to give that a break. Cool spot Downtown Oakland.

$1 oysters all day Monday (and they don't run out like some places)? Happy Hour with a good selection of cheap beers and appetizers during the week? SOLD!

One of my more favorite spots in Oakland because it's spacious (I kid you not, there just seems to be a room and then another and then again), has pool tables, pinball machines, music, and a good crowd.

Will definitely be back to try out their chicken and waffles during dinner.

Amazing food, oyster happy hour specials and great beers on tap. Luka's Taproom & Lounge is one of my favorite spots in the area. It's not the cheapest spot, but it's a very comfortable place to hang.

I love going to Luka's for happy hour, especially on Mondays when you can get the $1 Oyster special. Throughout the week, their happy hour food items change and it's a great place to unwind after work or with friends.

The have a pool table in the back, so make sure to bring quarters.

The food is delicious, the vibe is super chill, and the place gets busy.

Throughout the week at night and on the weekends, the main hall becomes a club, and it be "poppin." (Meaning, it goes down with good music and tons of dancing.)

Lots of fancy Belgian beers as well as some good domestics. Decent menu with some nice options but overall a bit disappointing. Watch out for the seafood platters, though. Excellent quality but they come at a price. Ouch!

I had arrived for the Yelp Elite Event at Ozumo about an hour early. It was also during the 3rd Quarter of the Jets/Steelers game and the TV screen at Luka's Taproom beckoned me to come hither. This was also a "safe" bet, as this dark and relatively deserted Uptown Oakland was not a place to be wandering around for too long.

I bellied up to the last open chair at the bar and made myself at home among an engaging variety of dazzling urbanites. Like me, the clientele didn't seem to care who won the game, and I suppose due to the Pittsburgh QB's legal issues, I leaned towards the Jets. Alas, that was not to be, but the tasty double IPA and small order of fries (with 3 fun sauces) took the hoppy edge off this "bitter" pill of defeat for me and fellow Mark Sanchez fashionistas. Go Packers!

I left happy and perhaps too "satisfecho" to fully partake in the later Ozumo offerings. And I'd love to come back. The layout is a little odd amongst the 2 front rooms and the back game room. However, this place has a lot of fun neighbourhood character, and the bartenders and their customers were fun to watch. Plus with good French Fries, a great burger can't be far behind.
