The garden at Mägo represents the soul of the restaurant. Our garden is relatively new and we currently have around 25 different varietals of plants, including leafy vegetables, roots, herbs and flowers that appear on our menu daily. It will continue to grow as we keep growing our kitchen. But our garden is more than ingredients: It’s the inspiration for dishes to come, making each day a work in progress.
Our garden isn’t just for us. We want our garden to be a learning environment and urban oasis for our guests and community. The garden brings friends, family and neighbors to have a glass of wine next to the sunflowers, a post-dinner coffee by the raised beds, or even a sniff from our lavender patch.
So please come and enjoy our small piece of nature amidst the urban setting of Oakland and enjoy a little escape from the daily pressures of the pandemic we are facing together.
