- Chop Bar is a neighborhood favorite near Oakland's Jack London Square, serving breakfast, weekend brunch, lunch and dinner. Using the finest ingredients found in the Bay Area, we make affordable and nourishing food designed to be enjoyed by everyone.
- We feature a brand new wine-on-tap system that produces less waste and reduces our overhead, meaning you can enjoy a better glass of wine at a lower price. The bar serves up unique custom cocktails using seasonal ingredients and fresh juices. We have an extensive beer selection featuring local drafts and a great bottle selection too! Our eco-friendly atmosphere was created using reclaimed, recycled and reused materials, featuring local art as decor, and is a welcoming environment for a quick bite, drink, or a leisurely dinner.
Come join us!

This years penultimate pig roast will be this Sunday at 4 PM at Linden. Ice cream, live music, even a jumpy house for the kiddies. See ya there.

Well, its midsummer, you know what that means- up to our elbows in tomatoes, corn, squash, peppers, strawberries, and other good stuff. Starting Saturday, all of our tomatoes will be from Wild Boar Farms, whose many varieties of dry farmed tomatoes are minerally, sweet, and delicious.
Happy birthday to server extraordinaire Shelby, who is finally old enough to legally drink. I’m not saying buy her one, but..
Pig Roast is on the 19th this month, at Linden. Details to follow.

Our next Pig Roast will be at Linden St. on Sunday July 15th. This one will also mark the 50th birthday of Big Ken, whose bass guitar stylings have graced many of our roasts. Look out for a spike in the worldwide price of Fernet that weekend.

We’ll be doing our pig roast on Fathers’ Day June 17th this month. Fists of Flour Pizza will be there, which is a great option for kids and vegetarians. Our friends at Tara’s Organic Ice Cream will be serving up Banana Cardamom, Salted Caramel, Choco;late, and Coconut Sorbet.
In menu news, our charcuterie plate will be featuring an item from Montreal charcuter Le Cochon Tous Ronds for the next week or so. Tonight it’ll be a large spherical salami they call “Jesus.” I’m calling it Jesus of Montreal, and it will probably be gone by the end of the night. Tomorrow; fegatelli, a hard salami with liver.

Local King salmon season has started and its the best in years. Fish are large, firm fleshed and delicious. We’re serving ours with asparagus, baby carrots, and pea shoot salsa verde.
I’m having a bit of trouble getting this pig poster image to fit, but you get the idea. This weekend’s pig roast should be a good one..

Our May pig roast at Linden St. should be a doozy. Its on Sunday May 20th, with Dynamic providing the music. We’ll be giving away some copies of the latest poster too.
Chop Bar is ramping up our catering arm. We are available for private pig roasts, weddings, office lunches and conferences, anywhere good food is needed. Email us at:
Happy Spring, see you at Chop.

We’ve got a couple new items on our weekday breakfast menu- Marin Sun Pork Chop and Eggs, and Chile Verde and Eggs. On our lunch menu, we have a new sandwich – griddled garlic and herb marinated Marin Sun pork leg, Fiscalini cheddar, night pickle remoulade( night pickles are our house pickled baby carrots, green beans, and radishes), arugula, and tomato, on griddled Firebrand wheat bread. This is our first sandwich to feature Firebrand. Their wheat bread, which is leavened by their own mother, is amazingly tangy and flavorful. Its baked right here in Oakland too.
This Saturday, please join us at Rock Wall winery in Alameda, where we will be cooking up tacos for 1000 or so of our closest friends at Rock Wall’s annual open house and tasting. Tickets are $35.

Lots of stuff happening since my last post. We’re going to be on an upcoming edition of Eye On The Bay, thanks to our good friend Tanya Holland. Chris and I will be trading witticisms on the air with Tanya and our close personal friends Thuy Vu and Liam Mayclem. They will also be at our April 15th pig roast at Linden St.
Our newly remodeled dining room and bathroom look pretty nice. All the tile, paint, acoustical ceiling(less noise), and plumbing were completed in just two days- pretty amazing. Photos to follow.
Lastly, we are expanding our charcuterie program. Our new prep kitchen in Berkeley, where we are doing our whole animal butchery, our sauerkraut, and other big projects, has a smoker! Some items we’ll be folding into the menu starting this week are our own pate maison, smoked pork belly, trotter terrine, tasso, and breakfast ham.
