From its humble beginning at Marina Village Shopping Center to its prominent placement in the Park Street Business District, Angela’s Bistro and Bar is committed to the local community in Alameda and to local, quality food.
With 30 years of experience in the restaurant business, Chef Saboor Zafari uses his personal appreciation for fresh ingredients to create modern California-Mediterranean comfort food (and occasional Afghani dishes) that excite the palate. Chef Zafari is especially dedicated to local artisan growers and is often spotted at the local farmers’ markets gathering ingredients for the day’s restaurant offerings. Menus are modified frequently to showcase his creative and seasonal inspirations both at the restaurant and for Bistro Zafari, the café and catering arm of the company.
With its comfortable and sophisticated atmosphere, the bar and lounge area inspires the same quality and service as the Bistro. Using fresh juices and organic ingredients, Angela’s has developed a modern beverage experience that brings contemporary mixology to Alameda while still keeping in mind the desire for value, comfort, and service.
Angela’s Bistro and Bar is committed to community service, raising over $20,000 for local charities. Twice weekly they host fundraisers for local nonprofit organizations: “Mojito Monday” features a celebrity bartender (Mojto Maker) and “Friday Night Flights” highlights wines provided by local vintners. In addition, Angela’s free annual Holiday Meal on Christmas Day has served thousands in the community and is a testament of Angela’s belief in giving back.
Since its initial opening in 2002, Angela’s Bistro and Bar has generated a large following. Not only is the restaurant a perfect place to gather for any occasion, but Angela’s also attracts fans with its strong feeling of community.
Angela’s Bistro and Bar is open daily starting at 11:30am. If you haven’t tried it yet, the restaurant offers one of Alameda’s best Early Bird Dinner specials every day from 4:30pm to 6:00pm.
