Large, exposed brick walls, high wood-beam ceilings, and floor-to-ceiling windows give Oakland's Penrose a rustic vibe, while modern touches include large, globular pendant lamps and potted trees and plants. This spacious eatery is inspired by the owner's great-great-great grandfather, who led the first all-black regiment in the Civil War. The food harkens back to his ancestral roots, conjuring the flavors of North Africa, Sicily, and Andalusia. The menu changes daily and includes dishes like pork belly with citrus, almonds, and jalapeno and the Penrose meatballs with minted yogurt. A curated wine list includes local and imported selections, and hand-crafted specialty cocktails are concocted with house-made mixers and fresh garnishes.
