Current Show "A little Princess" is a fabulous production with some broadway talent and great staging. Despite the name, this classic story has much wider appeal than just little girls. Its about bravery in the face of adversity, and a love of adventure even when surrounding by pressure to be conventional. If you loved RENT you are in for a treat -- one of the leads here won the TONY in 1996 for Angel in Rent. while all the adult leads and child leads are professional level here, his voice has a tone that transports you and echoes in the theater. Great fun evening -- runs through Dec 8th.
very very nice quality meals. changing menu. won several best of the bay area awards. genial host. one of my regular go-to places. never a problem for years of dining there.
Great show to attend if looking for anything old paper or history related letters,post cards,vintage photographs of the old west or your favorite town. The dealers at the show are allso Buyers of what they are selling, from old trip scrap books to the old family photo album from the civil war to the Exposition trip mom took in Seattle,or the brochure grandma got while in Yosemite. Many items to see, suggest to arrive early if you love to read or see interesting items..

The best Guilin noodles of USA
Fab store. I always love dropping by to see what they have. New stuff is always coming in and it's well curated. Friendly staff too. They don't have attitude. I'm always greeted with a smile. Even when they tell me they have to pass on something. I'd shop there regularly even if I didn't consign! So much of my wardrobe is from them now I rarely shop at big box stores. They have another store in Berkeley too, but I really love Montclair!
A coffee shop with soul and community. Definitely worth going out of your way to enjoy a truly amazing coffee (and tea) experience. Those who live/work nearby are lucky to be able to make this their daily stop. Kudos to Kristen and her partner Tina Nemling!

Can't wait for the event!
This restrospective exhibition showcases photographs of farm workers taken by Ernest Lowe 50 years ago in California's Central and Salinas Valleys. The focus of the show is on children and families. 50 years ago Lowe photographed many children working in the fields, some as young as 4 years old. In researching the situation today, Lowe found little has changed-- young children are still being exploited by corporate agribusiness. See www.ernestlowe.com for more information and a preview of the show itself. The show's opening is tonight, with wine, appetizers, and a talk by Lowe, and the show runs through the the end of the year.
We have been there about 7 times over the past ten years. It is great everytime. If you want a fine dining experience in the East Bay it would be my top recommendation. Skip the overly hyped -- and not so great places -- like Chez Panisse and go here instead.
Excellent. Best cinnamon rolls in the City of Berkeley that I have tasted.
Not sure when this review was written, but I couldn't disagree more. Chef Alter has a firm grasp on flavor profiles and composes plates like a true artist. In a single dish, the diner can have half a dozen different bites, each for foretelling techniques that take hours to execute. Chef combines texture, temperature, and taste in manners that keep your palate interested and eager for more. She does plays on many foods that bring back childhood memories in a sophisticated way. And the source ingredients are as fresh and seasonal as can be.
I get around to many restaurants, but this one keeps me coming back for more and more. Hands down, my favorite Oakland restaurant.
This sounds amazing! I can't make it that weekend, though...but looking forward to next year! Where is it exactly?
