The tradition of the South. The sophistication of California cuisine. Vibrant, cosmopolitan energy. Picán is 'Southern...Unleashed!' Full service bar/lounge with hand-crafted cocktails, Southern "twists" and classic standards. The most comprehensive Bourbon portfolio in the Bay Area; a thoughtful selection of wines. An open kitchen serves as focal point in the casually elegant dining room. <br /><br />Unique Southern flavors: Signature Southern Fried Chicken, Catfish Nantua and VooDoo Shrimp & Grits. Seasonal produce and sustainably sourced meats and seafood. "Ultimate Southern Social Hour." Lunch Favorites: Flavorful salads, Southern Sammies including NOLA Brisket Burger! Brunch Favorites: Beignets, Fried Chicken Eggs Benedict and Bourbon Bloody Mary. <br /><br />Private, luxurious dining rooms: The Bourbon Room seating up to 28 and Vieux Carré seating 40. Named "Best Overall Oakland Restaurant 2012" by Oakland Magazine. <br />

Ozumo, contemporary Japanese cuisine with Oakland's largest sushi bar, sake lounge and full bar with a nightly DJ. Ozumo serves classic Japanese cuisine along with it's own original creations. Ozumo has 3 private dining rooms and chef counter seating as well.

"I've eaten here several times over the years. I absolutely love Ozumo's for their food and ambience! It's a special treat. I made a reservation to treat myself to lunch. I sat in the bar area. I placed my order within a reasonable time. I waited 20+ minutes after my order was placed (which is unusual). I asked about the status of my order. It turns out that my order wasn't "sent" in the computer. Thus, my long wait. The waitress apologized profusely. I understand, mistakes happen. They redeemed themselves by compensating my meal free of charge. I tried something new (the various meats) bento box. It was absolutely wonderful! I will definitely return!"

"I treated myself and dined alone. I was in the bar area. I ordered the Sake Bento Box and it was a feast for my eyes and so scrumptious! I tried and ate something new (the mashed radish, the buckwheat noodles with the mushrooms, the tempura shredded veggies)! The vanilla cream puff was an unexpected treat! Wow! I will order this again! I highly recommend this dish and Ozumo's in general.!"
