Patricia Unterman takes a stroll across the Bay to Flora, and like so many other reviewers before her, find plenty of positives at the neighborhood fave while wondering if Oakland is the new Brooklyn, given Flora's newfound success: "...real estate malaise has not kept the crowds away from Flora. It’s a bona fide hot spot, crashingly noisy at night when the curved bar and all the tables are packed, and pleasantly buzzing at lunch, my favorite time to go ... nothing about this big, airy room seems over designed. Flora feels very East Bay casual, handcrafted and appealing." [SFE]
