food: Juhu Beach Club
Tuesday K and I celebrated my birthday with dinner at Juhu Beach Club. The small restaurant is decorated in cheery pinks and oranges, and while it's a bit loud when crowded (like most restaurants these days), K and I didn't find it overwhelming.
In short, we liked everything we tried, but we especially loved the asparagus nest with a soft-cooked duck egg, and the Manchurian cauliflower. Hat tip to Christina Mitchell of East Bay Dish for recommending the cauliflower. It's clearly a popular dish, because we saw a lot of it moving out from the kitchen.
And shout-out to Oakland artists Bruce and Sue Mark of marksearch.org, the creative force behind Walking the Invisible City - the 10,000 Steps program, which placed numerous markers about Oakland's historic parks downtown. Sue is also creating the Klinknerville.org website, which looks at the people and history of what is now the Golden Gate District.
