N Calif seafood---like old Spenger's
Does anyone know of an establishment that has the ambiance, service and food of the old Spengers in Berkeley? Our family had our fav dishes (prawns & sherry wine, prawn curry, chowder, oysters) and we always had a swell time through the years. Current owners don't have it.
At Fisherman's Wharf, Fisherman's Grotto #9 has been in business 75 years. Haven't been there recently, but decades ago when my family came down from Washington State they always looked forward to a big splurge at the place. I would imagine the same vibe still prevails.
You can still get all the old favorites -- cioppino, crab louis, calamari steak, etc.
