Oakland Magazine Praises Signature Dishes

Smitten With Signature Dishes.

Habit forming food transcends the norm at these10 hallowed East Bay eateries.

“Some things have changed since Rick and Ann’s opened across from the Claremont Hotel 23 years ago. But you can always count on the elevated versions of American comfort food, including meatloaf and macaroni and cheese at dinner. One of the prime motivations to stand around waiting to get in for breakfast is to abandon your carb and fat-calorie monitoring and sink your teeth into the golden brown potato-cheese pancakes. They take at least 15 minutes to prepare, but when they arrive – with sour cream, chives and applesauce – your patience is abundantly rewarded. Order a short stack or a full order, enhanced your indulgence with a couple of eggs, or pig out on the Midwest plate, on which the potato pancakes complement eggs, grilled tomatoes and a house-smoked pork chop.”
