A Côté
  5478 College Ave./Taft Ave.; Rockridge.  Who doesn’t like sitting in a dimly lit room buzzing with excitement?  Choose the bar, some smaller side tables, a central communal table, or an outdoor patio in this casual bistro.  The ever-changing menu consists of rustic French, Spanish, and Mediterranean small plates meant to be shared.  All seem to be winners, but the don’t-misses include pommes frites with aioli, house-marinated olives, and any of the flatbreads.  A selection of cheeses and a long list of wines and spirits add to the hum.  Designated drivers aren’t denied drink delights--try a tasty Gewurztraminer grape juice served up in a martini glass.  Delicious desserts might include a Meyer lemon-curd tart or a plate of profiteroles stuffed with banana-nut ice cream.
