Mama, the red-sauce joint from the team behind Bay Grape wine shop, opens tonight in Oakland’s Lake Merritt neighborhood. This restaurant will be different from many other new Bay Area openings, say owners Stevie Stacionis and Josiah Baldivino. Not just because it’s affordable ($29.95 for a three-course prix fixe menu). Not just because it has a killer wine list (which is to be expected from these two wine veterans). But also because they conceived of this restaurant with the neighborhood in mind.
