We’re always looking to make The Infatuation the best platform to find restaurants, and we appreciate your feedback!

Hi Infatuation reader. With restaurants around the country reopening, we understand that socializing in any form might still feel strange, and poses risks too. Should you go out to eat? That’s up to you. But we’ll continue to keep you informed as best we can. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email us at community@theinfatuation.com.

Guide

Oakland & Other East Bay Restaurants Reopen For Outdoor Dining

A running list of Oakland, Berkeley, and other East Bay restaurants that have reopened their patios for outdoor dining.

Updated July 16th, 2020

Alameda County and Contra Costa County restaurants have reopened for outdoor dining, and we’re focusing on what we know: Which places are opening back up and what to expect based on the state-wide restrictions. Like you, we’re monitoring the situation day-by-day (more like hour-by-hour), and we’ll continue to update this guide as restaurants in Oakland, Berkeley, Emeryville, and other East Bay cities reopen.

Currently, the majority of East Bay restaurants have not yet reopened their dining rooms. For our full guide of takeout and delivery options in the area, check out the East Bay Takeout & Delivery Directory. If you want to know what the restaurant reopening status is in counties across the Bay, head here.

Let us know of any spots we’ve missed by emailing us at sanfrancisco@theinfatuation.com.
