Hopscotch's Itani wins the Knife Fight!

jaiko | Aug 23, 201405:48 PM    

As reported by Berkeleyside Nosh, Chef Kyle Itani of Oakland’s Hopscotch appeared on Esquire TV’s “Knife Fight: Live Halibut!” — and won! His appearance on the reality show aired Aug. 19, but he told Nosh’s Ms. Barstool that the prized “I Won” cleaver (yes, that was the prize; the loser got a tiny cleaver) had been 'hidden in plain sight' at Hopscotch since January. Inspired by his experience on the show, Itani has created something new for the Hopscotch menu this month: poached Petrale sole, with miso sofrito collard greens.

Hopscotch, in Oakland's Uptown:
1915 San Pablo Ave, Oakland, ph: (510) 788-6217
