OVO Offers “Eclectic Food with a Twist”


Oakland’s Very Own Tavern (OVO) is hosting private events leading up to its grand opening in March.

Located at 5319 Martin Luther King Jr. Way (across from UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland), the restaurant features a state-of-the-art, ultra high-definition curved televisions, a beer garden and craft beers from local vendors, including Southern Beer.

OVO features “Eclectic Food with a Twist,” prepared by Chef Felipe. Menu offerings include crab cakes, bleu cheese sliders, garlic prawns and mussels, BBQ ribs and sweet potato fries.

Signature cocktails include “OVO punch,”— a rum-based punch blend and the “Poker-face,” a vodka-fused cocktail with a nice heavy pour.

Dessert-lovers will enjoy fresh pastries, cupcakes and a hearty bread pudding provided by Gregory’s Bakery.

“We are here to be a destination place within the North Oakland Corridor,” said DeWayne Guzman, general manager. “We want to cater to the community and neighboring businesses such as Children’s Hospital.”

The OVO team is community-focused and interested in working with local, homegrown vendors that are hot on Oakland’s unique food scene.

OVO is open Sunday- Thursday from 7 a.m. -2 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. – 10 p.m. On Fridays and Saturdays, the restaurant is open from 7 a.m. – 2 a.m.

Breakfast and coffee are served daily. Patrons can enjoy Wi-Fi during their dining experience.
