510 525–3121 (ask for Diana Ornelas)

Picante is an expression of love for Mexico. A celebration of real Mexican cuisine, not of those imposters that are poured out of cans. Love is why we grind corn daily for our tortillas, import Mexican herbs, spices, and chiles, and have local artisans craft cheese that replicate the nuances of fresh Mexican cheeses. Love also explains everything from the naturally raised meats we grill, simmer, and stew for some of our dishes, to the Mexican folk art we sleuth out for our walls. Now, the traditional food at Picante may not be coming from a grandmother’s kitchen somewhere in Mexico. But, judging from the reactions we get, it’s pretty close.

Brown Sugar Kitchen

510 839–7865

At Brown Sugar Kitchen we cook with locally grown, organic, and seasonal ingredients whenever possible. Our menu reflects Tanya Holland’s unique interpretation of soul food which is influenced by her family history of entertaining family and friends, formal training at La Varenne Ecole de Cuisine in France, and love of food from a wide variety of cultures.


510 809–0400

Since 2009, Gather in Berkeley has showcased truly organic, “head to tail” and “root to shoot” food, craft cocktails, and local wines that reflect the bounty of Northern California. Located in the David Brower Center, the “greenest” building in the East Bay, Gather was inspired by the social and ecological ethos that businesses can positively impact the community and, by extension, the planet. We believe that the way food is produced before it gets to our restaurant is every bit as important as how it is prepared in the kitchen. That means raised naturally, harvested at the right time, delivered with care, and prepared with love. Our goal is to nourish our community on several levels, in a lively, yet relaxed environment which makes use of recycled and repurposed materials in creative ways.

La Mediterranee

510 540–7773

Beyond our incredibly inviting dining space, we offer a full roster of delivery and catering services, in addition to offering the option of picking up your order at our restaurant. Parties? Picnics? Meetings? General gatherings? No event is too big or too small for La Mediterranee to handle. Conveniently located on College Avenue in Berkeley (with an additional location in San Francisco), La Mediterranee brings the easier way of Mediterranean life to the Bay Area. And with that way of life comes a way with cuisine—from spicy humus and cucumber yogurt dip with pita bread, to chicken shawarma and a myriad of Middle Eastern plates, our expert kitchen staff injects a taste of the Mediterranean into every single authentically prepared dish they make.

La Note

510 843–1535 (ask for Dorothée Mitrani-Bell)

La Note is a southern French restaurant known for rustic bistro fare at lunch and dinner, but at breakfast rumpled locals come in droves to relax over inspired egg dishes, toasted brioche with lavender honey, and oatmeal raspberry or crème fraîche pancakes accompanied by cafe au lait served in bowls so big it’s almost hard to find room for them on the little wooden tables. Charming details—the chunky Provencal pottery, French-country table linens, bowls of jam, and brown sugar cubes—make this the next best thing to being in France.

Phil’s Sliders Catering

510 845–5060

Phil’s Sliders Catering provides decadent sliders and our famous homemade potato tots using fresh, local ingredients and green business practices. Phil’s Sliders caters office lunches and happy hours, birthdays, fundraisers, and any special event. We deliver hot and fresh, or we have a mobile unit we can set up outdoors anywhere to feed your crowd!

Sweet Adeline Bakeshop

510 985–7381 (ask for Jennifer Millar)

Sweet Adeline is a neighborhood bakeshop. Everything is made here in small batches; this means we run out of some items on some days. We experiment with desserts until we find out what our customers want. Some of our ingredients are organic and local. We buy much of our fruit from farmers who sell at the Berkeley Farmers’ Market. Our dairy is Clover. Our chocolate is German, Belgian, and Californian. There is a great deal of effort and love put into everything we make. What else is the point of a neighborhood bakeshop? Many of our customers are also our friends. It has been a wonderful day in the neighborhood.
