Celebrate the Harvest at East Bay Native American Restaurants

Acorn Crepe from East Bay Native American RestaurantsHonor the harvest at one of the East Bay’s Native American restaurants.
How exciting is it to have the opportunity to experience a whole new (to you) palette of flavors made from local and seasonal foods? We are so fortunate to have two local Native American restaurants—and they are receiving shining reviews. Native American cuisine is the oldest cuisine in the Americas. It displays both richness in flavor and diversity in origin that have developed over time throughout a variety of regions.

Note that these menus change regularly due to the seasonality of harvested foods.

Wahpepah’ Kitchen

The creation of chef and caterer Crystal Wahpepah, of the Kickapoo, who was born and raised on Ohlone land in Oakland. Crystal’s work to reclaim food sovereignty and educate the community on the health benefits of Native food is at the heart of Wahpepah’ Kitchen. The fall menu includes dishes like Buffalo Creek Squash Salad, Red Chili Bison Tamales, Wild Native Mushroom Pumpkin Seed Mole, and Acorn Crepes for dessert.

Cafe Ohlone
Located outside the Hearst Museum of Anthropology on the UC Berkeley campus, at Bancroft on College Avenue

Cafe Ohlone is a love song to the Ohlone culture and the only Ohlone restaurant in the world. Every Cafe Ohlone offering is accompanied by a description of the specific context of this beautiful and living Ohlone culture. Their fall menu includes items like Black Acorn Bread, Bay Nut Truffles, Bay Laurel Crispy Duck Breast, Dandelion Soup, Oysters on the Shell with Gooseberry Sauce, and Yerba Buena and Bay Laurel Sorbet.
