On Lake Chalet

2010_01_lakechaletdocks.jpgThe New York Times bestows some national attention on Oakland's massive Lake Chalet, noting that it feels more like a neighborhood place than its San Francisco kin, but for better or worse, the main show is really the setting: "With all the visual distractions, the food is a bit of an afterthought. The contemporary Californian menu is resolutely unpretentious ('Start with some fresh seafood!' it exclaims) and less singular than the views." [NYT]
