First Look: Jack's Oyster Bar & Fish House Oakland
Just opened Tuesday, August 19, in Oakland’s Jack London Square, Jack’s Oyster Bar & Fish House is the second restaurant from Rick Hackett and Meredith Melville of next door Bocanova. Hackett crafted a seafood-dominant menu (ideal in Jack's waterfront setting with spacious outdoor patio gazing out at docked boats - pictured above) alongside Executive Chef Peter Villegas (Campton Place, La Mar, La Folie, to name a few). East and West Coast oysters flow and the house clam chowder ($9 bowl) is luxuriously creamy and smoky with bacon. Here are our initial recommends after an opening week visit to this welcome new Oakland seafooder.
