Oakland Restaurant Week 2015, running from January 15 to January 25, is a celebration of Oakland restaurants and eateries. To garner excitement, Visit Oakland offered an opportunity to vote for your favorite participating restaurants, showing the variety of participating vendors.
We’re delighted that OBDC borrower The Hog’s Apothecary won the final found (another OBDC borrower Nido was right on their tail). You can find more information about participating restaurants at the Oakland Restaurant Week website.
Here are our recommendations for some great places to try, including their business descriptions from the Oakland Restaurant Week listings (all OBDC borrowers!). You can explore menus, make reservations, and see the amazing selection of Oakland restaurants, all on the Oakland Restaurant Week site. You can find all OBDC-funded restaurants on our borrower map.
