The tradition of the South. The sophistication of California cuisine. Vibrant, cosmopolitan energy. Picán is 'Southern...Unleashed!' Full service bar/lounge with hand-crafted cocktails, Southern "twists" and classic standards. The most comprehensive Bourbon portfolio in the Bay Area; a thoughtful selection of wines. An open kitchen serves as focal point in the casually elegant dining room. <br /><br />Unique Southern flavors: Signature Southern Fried Chicken, Catfish Nantua and VooDoo Shrimp & Grits. Seasonal produce and sustainably sourced meats and seafood. "Ultimate Southern Social Hour." Lunch Favorites: Flavorful salads, Southern Sammies including NOLA Brisket Burger! Brunch Favorites: Beignets, Fried Chicken Eggs Benedict and Bourbon Bloody Mary. <br /><br />Private, luxurious dining rooms: The Bourbon Room seating up to 28 and Vieux Carré seating 40. Named "Best Overall Oakland Restaurant 2012" by Oakland Magazine. <br />

Restaurant Chu offers quality, fresh ingredients with strong Asian flavors. We "re-create" the best of Chinese cuisine in an innovative and satisfying mode.

A16 restaurant is named for the highway connecting Campania to Puglia and the menu is rooted in the rustic traditions of these lively southern Italian regions. The wine list highlights southern Italian varietals and over 40 wines are available by the glass and half-bottle carafe. The bar features traditional and modern cocktails and a wide selection of amaro.

Utilizing techniques inspired by classic culinary craftsmanship, Gather in downtown Berkeley features organic local produce, pizzas, sustainable seafood, and humanely-raised meats that showcase the unique abundance of Northern California. We have a balance menu of meat and vegetarian offerings, craft cocktails, and local, sustainable wines. The experience is served up in a warm ambiance informed by honey hued reclaimed woods literally “gathered” from the surrounding area. Directly across from the UC campus, it is conveniently located with parking lot beneath the restaurant just 5 minutes from Zellerbach Hall and Berkeley Rep.
