The residential Lakeshore-Upper Grand neighborhood, cultivated by famed landscape architects Olmsted Brothers, is a sculpted terrain of winding streets following the natural contours of the land. Homes date back to the 1920s and ‘30s, some designed by notable Bay Area architects like Julia Morgan, Maybeck & White, and Charles McCall. Today, the neighborhood retains its period flavor, with large, romantic homes in the Italian Renaissance, Tudor, Spanish, Monterey, French provincial, and Colonial styles. Lakeshore-Upper Grand is close to the Lakeshore and Grand Avenue shopping districts. Michel Bistro is a French bar and restaurant with authentic cuisine, Arizmendi Bakery offers pastries and lunch dishes, and Lin Jia Asian Kitchen features Chinese and Asian Fusion selections. Shops like Urban Indigo, Sway, and Silver Moon Kids entice visitors with eclectic items for all ages.
