Ruth is right; I left Alameda too soon. I read in GraceAnn Walden's column in the Chronicle today Jim Maser has taken over Alameda's Lyon's and opened Picante Playa. It's worth a try--his Berkeley Picante Cocina Mexicana is good in a non-taco-truck kind of way. And you gotta give him credit for reducing the # of Lyon's by one. The location is beautiful--right across from the beach. And there's lots of parking.
