Piedmont Avenue in Oakland is practically all restaurants, from low-end to high, including tons of pizza and burgers — especially with KronnerBurger having just opened.
So Robert Gott and Mica Talmor-Gott — who have spent the last 12 years catering, and continue to do so — set out to do something different. With the opening of Ba-Bite
, ("ba bayit" in Hebrew means “at home”) they’re serving the food they want to.
“Here we have the freedom to do whatever we want. When you’re in someone’s home, you eat whatever’s there,” said Talmor-Gott, who grew up in northern Israel, in a family where “food is love, food is everything.”
