Flora is Fabulous: Get Thee to a BART Train!
Something of an Oakland version of NOPA -- if it were crossed with a slice of Bourbon and Branch cocktail culture -- this stylish restaurant is housed in a former deco era flower shop in the up-and-coming Uptown district, right across from the soon-to-be-renovated Fox Theater and on the same block as the Uptown nightclub. (Good daylight photos here.)
I hear that their burger is one of the best in the Bay Area, at least within the world of fancy restaurant burg purveyors.
Three stars from the Bauer! Solid.
Check it out! I promise you it is worth the trip.
