We Be Jammin’

Man, you’re always working your way out of a jam. If it’s not getting out of dinner with a drip, it’s dislodging a doohickey from a drawer.

So you’ll want to wedge your way right into Miss Pearl’s Jam House, opening tomorrow in Oakland.

Jack London Square’s newest address emulates a Caribbean manse with vintage cruise liner nuances. Decked out with porthole windows, coral mosaic walls, and shell-encrusted menus, the island-inspired resto serves up tropical Southern flare: Florida conch and sweet corn fritters, jerk chicken, sugar cane barbecue shrimp, baked clams, and twice-fried plantains.

Pony up to the resin bar encasing pseudo-sea floor treasures for a stellar offering of light and dark rums, Key lime martinis, and the house specialty: Cuba Libra Jell-O shots.

Be sure to catch the live music on the weekends.

Because you never miss a good jam session.


Miss Pearl’s Jam House, 10 Washington Street, at Embarcadero Way, Oakland (510-444-7171 or misspearlsjamhouse.com).
