The dishes have offbeat, campy names like LadyBoy and TV Dinner, but dont let the kitschy language distract you from the other charms of this quietly upscale breakfast-and-lunch place. The cooking shines with bold seasonings and refined technique, and the service navigates crisp and casual as few restaurants can. That mix of laidback and pristine is a fitting blend for the new West Berkeley, a traditionally scrappy neighborhood recently sprouting sleek condo lofts. Still, 900 Graysons burger, topped with chunky bacon and barbecue sauce, defies gentrifications stereotypes.
