I'll be visiting Berkeley for an upcoming graduation. I'd appreciate any suggestions on where I can take the graduate to lunch on her special day. We would need someplace within walking distance.
There are lots of places near campus, but most are pretty casual. Did you want this to be a more formal, fancy meal or something more relaxed?
Will it be just the two of you? Graduation time can be intense for nice restaurants. I'd call to try to make a reservation.
Here are some ideas:
Adagia (very close, at the southeast corner of campus)
Chez Panisse (a mile northwest of campus)
Bistro Liasion (two blocks northwest of campus)
Cesar (a mile northwest of campus)
