One of Berkeley's most Berkeley spots. Each month's menu highlights what local farmers have on hand. The building, a converted house, is a little cozy and a little tony, while the attentive service shows just why Lalime's has lasted 25 years. The predominantly older clientele looks to have been visiting since the restaurant opened; one senses the appeal is in the familiarity.
