Looking for good dinner spot pre-theater at Berkeley Rep.
Just found out that FIVE is closed that night so we need to find a new spot for dinner before we see a show at Berkely Rep. Prefer a restaurant within walking distance to the theater. Thanks!
Jupiter on Shattuck is also pretty good. Good beer and pizza and usually live music in the patio.
Bobbie G's on University around the block from the Rep is also tasty
I haven't been , but Meridian Sports Cafe on University has a dinner special for $59, one app, two entrees, one dessert and a bottle of wine. The menu had a wild salmon and steak frites.
To be sure, there is not much that is as good as Five within walking distance, but we often go to Corso on Shattuck (if you don't mind a long walk). They are usually pretty quick, and the food is so good.
Five is open for dinner seven days a week from 5:30. Are you talking about a holiday?
Here are some other good places in the area. Angeline's is also good but I wouldn't go there if I needed to get out at any particular time.
Cyprus is, despite the name, Persian.
