Sharing My Recipes, My Life, And The Food Tale Of Two Cities

Downtown Wine Merchants-Downtown Oakland, CA

Downtown Wine Merchants

A wine bar offering small-batch vino and New American small plates in an upscale old-world space.  My daughter Melissa is a “regular customer” at the Downtown Wine Merchants-Oakland, CA. and they treat her like royalty, She was so excited to share this little gem with me. She said, mom, “You need to post this on your blog right away”! As you can see, I wasted no time.

Located just across the bridge at 102 Frank H Ogawa Plaza Oakland, CA. 94612, this is where the locals gather for great wine and outstanding food.

Melissa chose the Grilled Atlantic Salmon, braised vegetables, and olive tapenade.
