Dad gets a pass to go out for dinner. Where?

andrewt Oct 23, 2007 03:37 PM

My wife goes out for a night with the moms group once in a blue moon, and I have not taken her up on a similar dads night out yet. I usually take my "time" during the day to go photograph while it's light out and I'm usually at the computer at night doing photography work. But, I'm being nudged to go out for a fine dinner on my own since I keep "complaining" about our lack of babysitters and date nights (we eat well at home, but sometimes it's just fun to get out!). Sounds fine to me.

Have any recommendations? We usually hang out in Berkeley or North Berkeley on our date nights (actually, usually on Fourth Street). Probably belly up to a bar, have a drink and eat there. Just keep it casual, but really good. Low key, relaxing, no fuss. Any ideas?

Might hit Amoeba music afterwards. Perhaps to Anna's jazz bar.

    Maybe Cafe Rouge? Though from the sound of it, you probably already know about that place.

      Get out of fourth street: Fonda. Eat at the bar.
