Picán's 5,600 square foot space in the heart of downtown Oakland pairs Southern hospitality with the sophistication and glamour of urban cocktail culture.
"We wanted an elegant restaurant that expresses the rich tapestry of the South and really creates the feel of down home traditional meets cosmopolitan sophistication. Tonya was able to bring my vision of a warm and inclusive restaurant to life—with just the right touch of Southern hospitality and genteel New Orleans charm."
– Michael LeBlanc, Picán owner and New Orleans native.
San Francisco Chronicle gives Tonya Bellusci's Picán design excellent rating.
"It's a seamless blend of old and new that dovetails with the food."
– Michael Bauer, SF Chronicle
