Chez Panisse

1517 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley, San Francisco, California 94709


See Website

Accredited with popularizing California cuisine, this farm-to-table institution in Berkeley is a must for anyone in the area. Co-owned by lauded restaurateur Alice Waters, the charming Arts & Craft building houses the more formal Restaurant downstairs, serving a prix fixe menu, and the bistro-like Café upstairs, a warmer and more casual spot offering an à la carte selection. Offerings at both venues change daily, though the Café always features pizza and a baked goat cheese salad, both of which are legendary.

The restaurant is located a 30-minute drive from downtown San Francisco.
