San Ramon: Noshery food hall with 8 restaurant concepts opens first East Bay location

Noshery, a food hall that offers mix-and-match restaurant meals from one kitchen for dine-in, delivery and takeout, has expanded to San Ramon — its first East Bay location.

Unlike some ghost kitchens that are situated in industrial neighborhoods for primarily delivery orders, Noshery — a concept from Byte Kitchens, a food tech company — locates its sites in retail districts and offers some casual seating for pickup customers. The first two opened in downtown San Mateo on South Ellsworth Avenue and in San Carlos on that city’s restaurant row, Laurel Street.

The San Ramon kitchen — located on San Ramon Valley Boulevard just south of Crow Canyon Road — has launched with several restaurant partners, some familiar to Bay Area diners, some concepts new to this market. And more menus will be added soon. There is seating for 20 diners inside, plus patio tables.

A grand opening party from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. this Saturday, April 22, will feature a ribbon-cutting ceremony, raffles, games and free food samples.


Oren’s Hummus: Oren and Nancy Dobronsky have re-created the creamy hummus of Oren’s native Tel Aviv and shared it with the Bay Area. The lineup at the Noshery includes Mediterranean kebabs, salads, baba ganoush and more.

The Little Chihuahua: Founded in San Francisco in 2007, this Mexican restaurant offers a full menu of burritos, tacos and quesadillas. A popular filling choice? Garlic shrimp.

Asian Box: The chef-driven, fast-casual concept inspired by Vietnamese street food launched in Palo Alto a decade ago. The menu features customizable boxes loaded with six-spice Vietnamese chicken or chicken curry.

East Side Banh Mi: Vietnamese sandwiches, noodle bowls, rice bowls and salads featuring lemongrass chicken, caramel pork or tofu. The recipes come from the wife-and-husband team of Grace Nguyen and Chad Newton, who founded Asian Box and are now based in Nashville.

The Pastry Cupboard: Soft, freshly baked cookies available in chocolate chip, snickerdoodle, peanut butter and white chocolate & cranberry flavors are made from Bay Area pastry chef Chona Piumarta’s recipes.

Humphry Slocombe: This artisanal ice cream specialist, based in San Francisco, specializes in inventive flavors like Secret Breakfast (a boozy concoction), Black Sesame and Salted Caramel Cocoa Nib. Available by the pint.


Sushirrito: Back in 2008, founder Peter Yen, searching for an easier way to eat sushi, combined Asian and Latin concepts to create the first sushi burrito. Look for raw and cooked versions featuring yellowfin tuna, salmon poke, shrimp tempura and chicken karaage
