Two Local Girls Live Across The Street - Orion

Two Local Girls Live Across The Street

Convenience is key for busy lives. We’re a huge fan of the fresh, take-away items offered from Two Local Girls at Rocky’s Market just steps from Orion Apartments front door. With a rotating menu and local, organic ingredients in the market open daily between 10am to 7pm, there is always something offered to suit every palette on the rotational menu.

Recently named among ‘The 4 best breakfast and brunch spots in Oakland’, Two Local Girls is the catering company and brand behind the to-go items behind Rocky’s Market Brooklyn Basin! Plus, picnics are made easy as Two Local Girls caters! Read up on the background of these chef prepared meals and view a sample menu…

Before there was Rocky’s there were Two Local Girls and Corinne Kinczel (co-owner of Rocky’s Market Brooklyn Basin) was one of those girls!

A local chef by trade, Corinne and her friend Justine planned to open Two Local Girls together but another opportunity came up for Justine so Corinne opened Two Local Girls, as a solo local girl. Not long after TLG opened, fate would step in and Rocky’s would also be offered to Corinne – making her a very busy lady!

Culinary comes naturally to Corinne, having so many memories revolving around crafting and creating new food items with her mother and grandmother. A favorite memory includes 5-year-old Corinne playing restaurant with a neighbor complete with menus and an interesting recipe of a blackberry, graham cracker, and milk! With a strong line of women encouraging experimentation in the kitchen and a love of cooking, Corinne started a catering business after earning a BA in Psychology at UCSB.

Offering local, organic, and sustainably foods prepared off the hot line soon the Kitchen at Rocky’s Market will open up with outdoor waterfront seating. Local specialties will include seasonal crab, smoked Baby Back ribs, and roasted chickens, as well as an array of seasonal small plates. You’ll be able to order a small plate or two from the Kitchen or take home a Two Local Girls “take & bake” meal, prepared on site. You’ll even be able to order a glass of wine or beer and walk around with it while you shop at the market! There’s a lot to look forward to steps from home…
