#7 Our Wonderful Neighborhoods – North Berkeley has something special for you tomorrow!
Wed 24 Mar 2010 6-9 pm is “Taste of North Berkeley’s Gourmet Ghetto:Benefit for Food & Social Justice“
I’ve taken lots of photos of North Berkeley/Gourmet Ghetto and posted them on my Flickr Site. Click on the map and you can see the actual locations where I took the photo. Here’s what I wrote about the neighborhood …
Home of world famous Chez Panisse restaurant, but I think its real claim to fame is the French Hotel, where Angel, one of the wizards in the cafe make an excellent and inexpensive Giant Capuchino. I’ve never had better coffee, so, I’ve dubbed it the “Best Capuchino In The World”
The Cheese Board, just up the street, makes great breads and KILLER goat cheese pizza. Cheese Board Pizza, and Goia’s Pizza in Northbrae Berkeley are our Berkleey favorites – only Bell’s Pizza in Amherst, MA and The Boonton Inn in Boonton, NJ were better. It’s very different from New York style (go to Arinell, in downtown Berkeley for the most-like-New-York-pizza). Lococo’s, about a block north, is another favorite.
Saul’s Deli has really good pastrami and kishke.. almost (but not quite) like being back in The Bronx. Then again, I can’t get pastrami and kishke back in The Bronx anymore… so I guess it’s better.
