Bijou Restaurant & Bar, will provide the East Bay with a chic dining option. Bijou will showcase contemporary California cuisine, offered at reasonable prices.<br /><br />Prepared by Executive Chef Rodrigo Cedeño using seasonal, fresh, often locally sourced ingredients. Chef Cedeño, a native of Hayward, graduated from the Cal Poly Pomona’s Collins College of Hospitality Management program, carried on at Vu Restaurant, where he gained insight and experience in modern cuisine and techniques in molecular gastronomy. Thereafter, he worked at RN74 in San Francisco. Here he developed a solid foundation of classical French techniques. <br /><br />The direction of the menu is modern, something that will provide each guest with an “affordable palate”. We will achieve this by offering new & unique flavor profiles with each dish and creating a regularly changing, seasonal menu. <br /><br />Bijou's bar specializes in craft cocktails.

"I took advantage of a 'living social' coupon ($29) dinner for two. I had to choose from the price fix menu which was limited. My entrée portion was sufficient, however, my partners portion was extremely small, and neither entrée plate had a vegetable, which is very unusual. The food was well seasoned, so perhaps I would return to order from the regular menu."
