Attention "young urbanists," if you haven't already heard, Oakland's Temescal neighborhood is the next best place to gentrify if you want to give San Francisco the slip. Dubbed "Gourmet Ghetto" in the Wall Street Journal, a cluster of news restaurants around Telegraph Avenue and 51st Street -- many of them opened by Chez Panisse alumni -- are generating wafts of "culinary movement" buzz. Among the fledgling eateries are Bakesale Betty, Pizzaiolo, La Calaca Loca and Cafe Mariposa.
