This one’s for all my Bay Area babes out there! I recently took a trip back to the homeland and finally made it into the Boot & Shoe Service for dinner. I had been in this fantastic little neighborhood spot so many times at the bar, but never took the time to sit down for a meal. It was definitely worth the wait. Here’s a look at what we got!
Gemelli with chicken ragù
Pictured above is the Hook & Hammer Cocktail, a Pizza Special and an out of this world Tiramisu. Those were definitely the highlights of this meal for me along with the Pizzaiolo bread (a signature from their sister restaurant Pizzaiolo, also in Oakland and also worth a trip). The Boot & Shoe is the definition of a local gem. This place is ALWAYS packed so make sure to get there early for dinner if you don’t want to wait. The menu evolves daily with exciting specials and seasonal treats. It’s a bit pricey compared to other places in this ‘genre’ I will say, but it’s worth it for a special night out. Next time you find yourself in Oakland make sure to stop by!
