Come along with Nosh as we explore the East Bay food scene in photographs. This week we focus on Venga Paella, at 229 Brush St., in Oakland. This former catering company now has a brick-and-mortar location with a 49-seat dining room, a reclaimed redwood bar and other rustic accents. Don’t miss the Spanish Revolution-themed posters and the chef’s table. Venga Paella serves lunch Monday through Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. On Fridays, there’s also happy hour from 4-6 p.m. with extended dinner service until 9 p.m. Street parking is readily available. For more information or for reservations, call 510-628-0018 or visit www.vengapaella.com. If you’ve tried the spots we feature, please let us know about your experience in the comments below.
