Favorites in Emeryville?

  • m

I need a place for a business lunch in Emeryville. Much as I love the Public Market, I need to make a reservation. What are your favorites in the area?

  1. I love Bucci's. 6121 Hollis 547-4725

    Seasonal daily changing menu of Cal/Italian food.
    Sl dated "converted warehouse" atmosphere ( I thought was SO cool when I moved here 12 years ago) but consistantly delicious food

        Not to worry, it's always good to hear from someone who's been there more recently. It has been a long time since I've actually sat down to a meal at Bucci's.

        Any others you'd recommend?

          ... not that I can think of off hand. I don't think the Townhouse Bar and Grill (on Doyle) is as good.. nor is Milano.. and I haven't been in that neighborhood as much since we moved to Berkeley.. but last I was at Bucci's, 2 months ago, it was still great.
          Probably not great for a client meeting but I used to like strolling over to the macrobiotic coop cafe on 40th near Adeline. The cooks rotate day-to-day and the all vegan meals ranged from sublime to bizarre.. great 70's communal place to "eat your veggies" and I always felt good about supporting them.

    2. I haven't eaten there in a while, but you can't go wrong at Trader Vic's...unless its gone downhill fast. Good food, great ambiance.

        I'll second that recommendation. It may serve imitation Chinese and Polynesian, but Trader Vic's is still fun and with daylight, being on the waterfront is fun.

          Ah yes, Trader Vic's. Maybe I do need a refresher on Bongo Bongo soup. (g)

          Actually, I think I'll save the TV experience for a visit to the new one in Palo Alto...
