Rainy Day Lunch with Toddler Uptown

We have been to a lot of places pre-toddler up and down Magazine. With the toddler we have tried Sukho's Thai, Surrey's Uptown and Mahoneys. We have been eating a lot of take out, but are looking to go out. Anything with good food, but plenty casual and friendly for a not too great at sitting at the table toddler.

Rainy Day Lunch with Toddler Uptown

I am looking for a good place for lunch in Uptown with a toddler on a Sunday. We are down to our last few days in town and I'm looking for some fresh recommendations. Thanks.

Looking for Restaurant in East Bay (EC to Oakland) for Large Group Monday Nights and Fairly Inexpensive

Not fancy is perfect. Thanks.

Looking for Restaurant in East Bay (EC to Oakland) for Large Group Monday Nights and Fairly Inexpensive

I meet with a group of 9-12 people once a month on Monday nights.This month I am in charge of picking the restaurant and I am at a loss. I need someplace open on Mondays, of course, that can seat a group of around 12. We also are looking to spend less than $40/person including a drink or two, but preferably closer to $25-$30. It is a book club so somewhere that isn't too loud to carry a conversation is important. I am open to anything, pizza, dim sum, etc. as long as it serves drinks or is at least BYOB. The location could be anywhere from El Cerrito to Oakland (not too far past Jack London Square). Thanks for any ideas you can provide.

Tasso in East Bay north of Oakland?

Hobb's says they only sell their Tasso to restaurants, or I could buy 10 lbs of it, and they only sell their bacon to retail locations. I will try Angeline's. I used to get it from Corti Brothers in Sacramento. I might just have to make the trip there and stock my freezer. It is hard to believe there is nowhere in the east bay that sells it retail. Thanks.

Did you ever have any luck finding Tasso? I am looking for some also and neither places below have it available retail.

Thanks.
