Oxbow’s Award Winning Taqueria C CASA expanding to Emeryville Public Market
A five-time recipient of Michelin’s Bib Gourmand award, C CASA has chosen Emeryville for its initial expansion. C CASA, known for its inventive and fresh interpretation of the traditional taqueria, was among the first purveyors at Oxbow Public Market when it opened in 2010.
The addition of C CASA will bring a much desired breakfast option to the food offerings of the Public Market and another locally-based, chef-owner to its growing stable of purveyors.
From huevos rancheros to creative twists on tacos, C CASA is joining the eponymous food hall to serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Among customers’ many favorites are the rotisserie duck tacos topped with spinach, red onions, goat cheese, oranges, cumin vinaigrette, avocado crema and cilantro.
Entrees feature free-range poultry, grass-fed meats and local produce. The menu also includes chili-rubbed rotisserie meats, fresh salads, and interesting sides, with a C CASA twist. All items are fresh, made-to-order and are gluten-free. The Emeryville location will also serve boutique wines, bottled beers and unique cocktails.
“For years, we’ve had people come up from the East Bay and San Francisco to eat at C CASA. We’re delighted to bring C CASA’s delicious, nutritious and addictive food to the freshly reinvented Public Market” said C CASA’s chef-owner Catherine Bergen.
“We were really drawn to the vision for this new destination. It reminded us a lot of Oxbow – a central gathering place that is enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.” Bergen was born in nearby Alameda, raised in San Diego and spent the past two decades plus mastering her craft in Napa County.
News of C CASA’s lease comes on the heels of two new purveyor openings at Public Market within the past month, The Periodic Table and Fish Face Poke Bar. Later this fall Public Bar, a new concept from San Jose-based Blush, will open in the food hall, serving handcrafted cocktails and a variety of select wine and beer. With C CASA’s offerings including made-to-order hot breakfasts, in addition to lunch and dinner, the new restaurant rounds out the food hall’s morning, noon and night activation.
“Our Food Hall customers are really in for a wonderful experience with the addition of C CASA. Catherine and her team have a well-deserved reputation for excellence and they’re always working on new takes on their delicious food,” said City Center Realty Partners President and Co-Founder Mark Stefan. “Whether you’re a vegetarian, vegan or meat-lover, C CASA’s got something for everyone.”
C CASA’s location will be in the corner stall to the left of Fish Face Poke Bar. Their owners anticipate a January 2018 opening.
