Check out an East Bay Express review here:

Another day, another sausage slinger rises in Oakland. This time it’sBrotzeit Lokal (1000 Embarcadero), a new sausage-centered restaurant and beer garden from Chop Bar’s Lev Delany, which will softly open on Thursday, June 13.

Delany, Brotzeit’s chef and sausage-maker-in-chief, spent two years working at a bar in Berlin, and he said the thing he loved about Germany was how everywhere you went outside of the city, you could always find a beer garden — a friendly, casual place to eat and enjoy a beer. When the space that formerly housed a seafood restaurant called Oyster Reef became available, Delany finally had his chance to bring that kind of place to the Oakland waterfront.

And check this part out!:

4) The restaurant’s outdoor patio (which will seat about seventy) should offer some fantastic views of the water. Perhaps Brotzeit’s most unique feature is the fact that you can actually access the restaurant by sea. Delany’s partners, Krista and Tony Granieri are boating enthusiasts who have rented a few berths in the marina that will be available to customers arriving in sea vessels of various shapes and sizes — ”paddle boards, battleships, you name it,” Delany quipped. The Granieris’ 45-foot Delta cruiser will also be available for rent. Call the restaurant (510-645-1905) to inquire about rates and availability. According to Delany, it’s about an hour each way to sail to Treasure Island and back. Coupled with a casual sausage-and-beer lunch, that sounds like a pleasant summer afternoon to me.
