Oakland's new "playful," globally inspired bistro, Hopscotch, will be opening Friday. Today Eater gets a first peek at chef Kyle Itani's menu, which includes duck fat potato chips, sweet potato gnocchi, and a "First Base Burger" with beef tongue. There's also a cocktail list, sporting a maple syrup-laced Old Fashioned and other outside-the-box takes on classic drinks. At week's end, all of this and more will be available two blocks from both the Fox Theater and the Paramount in Oakland’s Uptown District. Have a peek at the retro-meets-modern decor above, and peep the full dinner, cocktail, beer and wine menus, below.
