BBQ in Alameda ... and other meaty topic (Scalise & Mariani's) ???

rworange | Apr 9, 2007 12:26 AM

OK, so a rumor about Portuguese food in Alameda (which I could not find) led to some possibly interesting stuff.

1. Everette & Jones supposedly just opened in Alameda

In the plaza at the corner of Atlantic and Main, right before you hit the Alameda Point entrance plaza and next to a donut shop ... that's all I know.

Anyone know about this or been there yet?

2. Great American BBQ

Ok, a known and reported (favorably) place. Here's a recent link

3. J's BBQ

I don't have an address only that it is Alameda directly under a flight path of the Oakland Airport, they serve American BBQ & Korean short ribs. There's no way to be tactful about this, but I read about this one on Yelp. Could they have the name wrong and given the Korean reference ... could it be ... ?
Su Won BBQ
1319 Park St
Alameda, CA 94501
(510) 337-1700

I mean does this ring a bell with anyone and match the description?

As long as we are talking meat ... any info about this place in Alameda?

Scalise Meat and Deli
(510) 522-4848
3211 Encinal Ave Ste B
Alameda, California 94501

From a Best of 2003 in the East Bay Express

" ... an Alameda institution since 1935. The fifty-foot-long case is packed with ... beef, lamb, natural chicken, seafood, and deli products, plus harder-to-find items such as quail, rabbit, and duckling. The "Papa Scalise" brand sausage and pasta sauce are made on the premises using family recipes from the homeland of Calabria, Italy ... These are men who know their meat, and over-the-counter advice flows freely"

Asena, an Alameda restaurant serves their meat

Don't know if the website is temporarily down or not, but here it is.

I guess Scalise also has a catering service. What's the word?

Edit: Oh wait ... I just found a 2002 post ... in Google

Ok, as long as I'm in Alameda here and talking meat ... one more and I'll leave eveyone alone ...

Mariani's Meats
1202 Chestnut
Alameda, CA
(510) 523-7481

The picture on their webpage is kind of cute and in addition to " juicy pork chops, delectable baby-back ribs ... succulent rib-eye steaks ... sumptuous pork loins ... lavish rib roasts ... luscious homemade Italian sausages" ... They "roast beef and chicken every day for hot take-out and our deli case is filled with delights for your palate.:"

Their slogan: "You can beat our prices, but you can't beat our MEAT"

So ... how are they?
