Oakland upscale-ish dinner with unusual caveat

I'd also look into Cintron, Oliveto and A Cote on College Ave in Oakland. Those restaurants are a bit more intimate with carpet and/or booths. Good luck!

Any Puttanesca Lovers Out There?

On March 11, 2008 I accomplished a huge personal goal. I'm not sure how or why the tradition started, but my way to celebrate on the 11th of each month is by going out for pasta puttanesca.

So...i'm looking for any recommendations of restaurants that 1) serve the dish and 2) are worth checking out! San Francisco, Oakland and Berkeley are the easiest places for me, but i'm also willing to travel if there is a special place not to be missed!

Not sure how long i'll keep up the tradition, but i am committed for at least for another 6 months. I'll save the best for my one-year celebration!

Thanks for your help!

How long do you need to cook if you're using fresh green beans?
