Help! ISO answer to a chow riddle

S U | Sep 18, 2006 07:08 PM

Ok, I've scoured the board and my own food memories but I have come up with zilch. Perhaps a fellow Chowhound can give me assistance? I've been roped into showing an out-of-towner around, foodwise. My guest is from France and is wondering about "American" food. I'm looking for a place for dinner on a Monday or Tuesday, that serves after 7:30pm, that takes walk-ins, that is $60 or less for 2 (entree & appetizer or dessert or all three) AND the most important factor: has a street scene so we can walk around afterwards. Oh, and preferrably as close to Oakland as possible.

So far I've come up with Everett & Jones @ Jack London, but to me its only passable food... which goes without saying that I have deliberately passed on Tony Roma's (or is it TGI Friday's?). Someplace in Rockridge off College might work, but I don't know the area well -- are there any specific recs? Another option may be the Grand Lake area, but not much of a street scene there. I also thought about International/Fruitvale area, but that is neither "American" nor safe for an after dinner stroll.
