The American eatery and pub is situated near the Pacific Film Archive and Cal Performances, making it a convenient place to grab a beer and a burger after catching an obscure movie or Cal production.
With high latticed windows and all the wood paneling Yosemite could spare, Adagia inherited its charms from its landlord, the Presbyterian Church. Designed to be a prime spot for faculty dinners, this UC Berkeley campus restaurant serves bistro food good enough for the rest of Berkeley in winter, crisp-skinned duck confit bedecked with cumined carrot ribbons; in spring, a fresh, light risotto with pea sprouts and asparagus.
