Encuentro (Oakland, CA)


Encuentro is a vegetarian restaurant located at 202 2nd Street in Oakland's Jack London Square neighborhood.

What they say:

encuentro is the latest addition to the New Jack London District dining scene. This intimate and casual café is the collaboration between Eric Tucker (executive chef at Millennium Restaurant in San Francisco), Lacey Sher (former owner of Down To Earth Restaurant in Red Bank, New Jersey), and Linda Braz. Encuentro means “to meet, gather, encounter” and encuentro will embody exactly that – a neighborhood wine bar and café featuring an eclectic mix of organic/sustainable wines from small, local and old world vintners. Our menu will highlight simple, flavorful, organic and local, vegetarian cuisine in the style of enotecas and tapas bars including bocadillos, hearty salads, local cheeses, small plates, artisanal chocolates and sweets utilizing seasonal and market driven ingredients. In addition to an extensive wine menu, we will serve small brewery beers, organic teas, coffee, and artisanal non-alcoholic beverages.

Menu Highlights

Small plates that rotate regularly. Although they serve dairy cheese, they also have nut-based cheeses. They offer olives, salads, bruschetta, sandwiches, and other small side dishes, in addition to an extensive wine list and desserts.
