I know there are amazing traditional style restaurants in the East Bay... but A Cote has always been my favorite. Yes it's dark inside, but a wonderful atosphere, great people watching and people talking. It is impossible to sit at the bar, whether you are with someone or not, and not meet other people. Bar tenders are the best, the mixed drinks are top notch and they have a resale license so that they can sell any of the wines you taste for good prices! Also the food is excellent!! The pomme frittes and and mussels are always amazing, the steak, the flatbreads, varied menu entrees are always excellents. There salads and desserts and not the highlights.. but overall the quality of the food matches the quality of everything else and this wonderful, local hangup.
