(The New) Authentic

Best of the East Bay 2013.

In our 2013 Best of the East Bay (the new) Authentic, we focused on the people, products, and services that are considered “authentically” East Bay, perhaps in a new way. This means restaurants, bars, boutiques, galleries, and other businesses that define (or are redefining) the genuine or real East Bay experience: forward-thinking comfort food; bars that have the casualness of your living room, but with upscale cocktails; unpretentious boutiques that feature local designers who are reinventing East Bay style. It also means places or businesses that have been around for a while and are considered an indispensable part of the fabric of East Bay life.
