This gorgeous, casual, and inviting restaurant isn’t just owned by three women of color, it’s owned by three women of color who are Bay Area natives, which gives it cred it doesn’t actually need since the food and cocktails speak for themselves. The menu reflects co-owners’ Lea Redmond, Anna Villalobos, and Sandra Davis, Mexican and African American heritages through Latin and Southern flavors, which means Fried Red Snapper with plantains, beans, and rice sits next to cheesy Shrimp and Grits. The hearty food is definitely a reason to visit, but so is popping in for a cocktail at the rooftop bar.
How to enjoy: Open for walk-ins or make a reservation online. Also available for delivery and takeout.
