This month, nearly 20 new restaurants opened in Berkeley, Oakland, Emeryville and beyond.
The Oxford Street parklet, which spans the entrances to four restaurants including East Bay Spice Company and Cinnaholic, is downtown's first.

NEW GRILL Bye bye Ironwood BBQ, hello Suya African-Caribbean Grill at 2130 Oxford Street opposite the campus. Think skewers of meat, fish and vegetables made with a savory custom spice rub called suya pepper ($4.95 to $8.95), served with flatbread. Also: jerk chicken, roasted plantain, roasted corn on the cob, sweet potato fries, French fries, and salad. Mainly take-out with a few seating options. Opening any day now. Phone 510 981 8028.
