About Wachira Wines
Wachira Wines is a black-owned, woman-owned winery in Alameda County and the culmination of the extraordinary vision and effort of Dr. Chris (Christine) Wachira, the first Kenyan-born, Californian winemaker, distributor, importer, and exporter. The #winesafari varietals offered by Wachira Wines represent a collection of well crafted, high quality wines.
The menu at Alley & Vine showcases the bounty that California has to offer – beautiful produce, pristine seafood, livestock raised with care. You’re sure to discover a favorite among the small bites, sandwiches, main dishes, and desserts.
Additionally, each cocktail is handcrafted with a reverence for season and quality and the wine list is one of the most preeminent in Alameda, featuring both domestic & international options.
But most of all, Alley & Vine is a warm, welcoming place to enjoy yourself and the company of those you care about.
Town Tavern offers a social environment with great drinks and bites. Specialty cocktails lean on East Bay spirits, including those from Wright & Brown Distilling and Oakland Spirits Co. The small plate menu includes fried-to-order chicharrones, bacon pierogi, bison poutine, New Orleans-style barbecued shrimp, and pork belly sliders loosely inspired by Taiwanese gua bao.
The 49-seat space is family-friendly until 10:00pm. Town Tavern then remains open late for the 21+ crowd.
The Park Street Tavern is a casual fine dining restaurant and bar serving Greek, Italian, and Mediterranean dishes. Inspired by his summers in Greece and his time in the kitchen learning to cook with his aunts, owner Christos Frangoulis puts an emphasis on fresh ingredients and offers some of the best flavors influenced by Central Mediterranean traditions.
