Now Open: Oakland's Butterjoint

Chef Trevett Hooper's new venture opens right next door to (2012 Best New Restaurant) Legume.



BUTTERJOINT IS SERVING HOMEMADE PIEROGIES

After chef Trevett Hooper (pictured) relocated his signature eatery, Legume (our 2012 Best New Restaurant), to Oakland, it was clear that bigger things were in store. His latest venture, Butterjoint, opened next to Legume yesterday night, and it's driven by quality ingredients. Expect to find (healthy) burgers and sausage on the menu, as well as pierogies and other fun fare.

(Butterjoint, 214 N. Craig St.; 412/621-2700; evening hours only; legumebistro.com)


CAFE PHIPPS OFFERS SUNDAY BRUNCH

Take a break from holiday cooking and treat yourself to a killer brunch at Cafe Phipps. The menu lists a wide range of dishes, all of which feature high-quality (and locally sourced) ingredients — fruit salad, vegan pastries, quiche, various egg dishes and more. Since it's not a weekly occurrence, you'll need to plan ahead a bit; the next one, set to take place Nov. 25, isn't fully booked, so be sure to make reservations soon.

(Café Phipps, One Schenley Park, Oakland; Nov. 25 brunch, 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.; 412/622-6914, phipps.conservatory.org)
