Yes, It’s Awards Season in Oakland! Oakland Magazine “Best of” Awards!

Click here to vote in the Oakland Magazine “Best of” Oakland and the East Bay! Voting has been extended until March 15, due to a snafu with the magazine’s email provider (the little gremlins weren’t delivering the votes!). So now’s your opportunity to spread a little lagniappe, sprinkle a little love on Picán! We hope we’re your favorite Southern/Soul Food restaurant in Oakland! That maybe Chef Spike’s Bourbon Street Burger is your favorite Best Burger in Oakland. Or you’ve whiled away some hours at our fabulous weekend brunches, with our awesome Bloody Mary’s or Mimosas, a couple of orders of Beignets and our Signature Fried Chicken Benedict…in which case, we may be your choice for Best Breakfast/Brunch? Part of our Lounge Krewe?? You can vote for us in the Best Cocktail category and for Best Lounge. Have you had our awesome “Southern Sammies” from the daily Lunch Krewe? Wellllll, snap! Oakland Magazine’s “Best of” categories have you covered, too! Best Sandwiches, perhaps Best Salads. If you’ve eaten your way through our “Hankerin’s” and “Dis ‘n Dat” menu items, you might even want to vote for Picán’s Small Plates.

The Best of Oakland and the East Bay contest voting occurs in two phases. In this round, you nominate winners in as many or as few categories as you like. Voting has been extended through March 15th. In the general election, which starts later, Oakland Magazine will offer up selected finalists in each category and ask voters to select final winners from among those top vote-getters.

Oakland Magazine’s rules: “We celebrate local, independent operators. Only one online vote per person or device. Evidence of ballot-stuffing or foreign hacking will be grounds for disqualification.”

We hope you vote for us in the categories of your choice and thank y’all for doing so! We can’t “vote” for our guests, so please know we feel it is a privilege to welcome you to Picán, an honor to serve you and our great joy to pass along a bit of the South through food, drink, music and art. Hugs, all around!
