Visited both recently on the strength of East Bay Express recommendation. Neumanali is in Hayward on B-Street, came out both guns blazing, Excellent food, good service, lovely building and a breezy patio that makes all the difference on a sunny afternoon. Reminded me of Lalimes. Will be back even though it's a bit of a drive.
Jackson's Canvas is in Montclair (Oakland), sleepy, residential, live bugs crawling on walls. Did Jackson like Kafka? REALLY bland food that didn't work for me but the porn-like mirror wall is worth a look-see. Just don't order any food :>
