Jesso’s to go

fatlady.jpgYou might have noticed Jesso’s on 9th Street hasn’t been doing too much business lately. That would be because it closed May 13, or rather moved Downtown to 14th Street between Broadway and Franklin.  Jesso said he wasn’t sure what would replace the seafood restaurant in Old Oakland. I couldn’t help yelping at the thought of a take-out joint, which was an idea he said he had considered but dismissed (I think) bc it would not fit with the little gourmet corner of the city. I’m not sure why he moved Downtown. I was reporting on another story  and was in a hurry when we talked a few months ago. But he sounded excited about the new location, which would give him the space for bigger dining and drinking. I haven’t been there yet, though.

    This Saturday (May 31) – more Rockabilly with Los High Tops and The Chop Tops at The Uptown.

    Yay! Glad Los High Tops will be back in town, although the news doesn’t exactly belong here in a post about Jesso’s. OTOH, the combo gives me the chance to correct myself about the restaurant: What did I find Friday night but an open Jesso’s on 9th and Washington. The place was hopping. Whooops! Every other time I passed by in the early evening it was closed. I gotta slow down and spend more time in my own neighborhood!
