Scallops Deals in Oakland
While the East Bay's mild weather can make us forget what time of year it is, there's one place in Downtown Berkeley that's very attuned to the seasons: Joshu-ya Brasserie, which offers a rotating, seasonally driven menu. With today's deal, $15 gets you $30 to spend on food and drink at dinner at this innovative Dwight Way eatery. Executive chef Jason Kwon draws from his diverse culinary background to craft unique dishes that combine Asian inspiration with California tradition, and Joshu-ya serves only the freshest sustainable fish available. Start with the seared day boat scallops with bacon-infused celeriac purée, white corn, roasted beets, and tortilla chips. Then, try the pan-seared striped sea bass with lobster-tomato bouillon, sautéed kale, and tarragon. You can also order nigiri from the extensive sushi menu, or try the chef's omakase tasting menu. You're sure to enjoy your meal -- no matter when you choose visit.
