What is the best restaurant for people watching? Must also have good food.

      I'd have to agree with this; my wife and I were amazed at the diversity in terms of age, dress and attitude. It was quite a scene. And the chicken is every bit as good as it ought to be, given all of the fame. Also the oysters, best in town outside of Hog Island, in my opinion.

    2. Vik's in Berkeley has always been a favorite people-watching place of mine. You literally get all kinds.....
