North Oakland's Wood Tavern is a rustic, upscale American restaurant that might be the best date spot in the neighborhood. The menu features classics like grilled pork chop with pancetta, a burger with all the fixin's, and rotating pastas and gnocchi. Seats at the bar are reserved for walk-ins, so if you're having trouble securing a reservation, they're the best seats in the house.
