Best of the East Bay 2011
Whether you’re looking for the best new restaurant (Jack’s in Pleasant Hill) or the best new boutique (Prim in Pleasanton), we’ve got the 411 on all the best places to eat, shop, and play in the East Bay. Who were the judges? Diablo readers, of course! Nearly 12,000 readers logged on to our website to vote for their favorite spots. Then, we sent our crack staff into the field to try them out. We also threw in some editor picks, like the best place to get foot reflexology (Foot Logic in Dublin) and letterpress stationery (Twig & Fig in Berkeley), to give you a few more expert tips.
Plus, we’ve got the scoop on some of the East Bay’s stars, including movie legend Tom Hanks, American Idol finalist Thia Megia, and Food Network star Guy Fieri.
Consider this your year-round go-to guide to just about anything in the East Bay. And just think, you can even stash it front and center on the coffee table.
