Don't even come near this restaurant unless you patronize it on Wednesdays. I was going to review this restaurant with a local patronizer who is a marketer and wanted me to feature Farmers Market in a blog. After seeing some beautiful orchids, we purchased it and put it in the car. We were not out of the car for 5 minutes but within those few minutes received a parking violation for $45.00. My contact tried to request the owner of The Englander to void the ticket but he told her she had to pay it 'unless I see the press person'. It is quite ridiculous because this family were huge fans of this restaurant and $45 is LESS than what one meal for them is. Easy to pay the ticket...bad PR for the owner, Jot Mangat. It was a bad experience for me - but that is what going undercover is all about. If you tell them you're ''PR" - they'll pull all the stops for you to impress. When you unannounced - you can see the real deal. Bad rap for the city of San Leandro...the meter maids are more than happy to slap a souvenir in your windshield. Stay away or park in somewhere more customer friendly. PS: Very rude people.
