Secret Eats

Michael Boyd of Scolari's


     Comfort food hews close to the heart of Alameda — and Scolari’s Good Eats provides, with its beloved chicken wings, stromboli, and most of all, its burgers. The house-made secret sauce plays a crucial role there, as does the challah bun, but the real stars have to be the perfectly cooked beef patty and the crispy fresh lettuce and tomato. All of which inspire such hamburger-holics as those at the Hamblogger blog to give the Scolari’s creation high marks. The latest high note at Scolari’s is likely the new suggestion box, which, co-owner and chef Michael Boyd says, will allow customers to “see their cravings come to life!” So what does Boyd crave in his free time?
