non-exotic family meal in Berkeley?
I'm visiting family who just moved to Berkeley. We're looking for dinner out tonight, for people who like good food but aren't terribly adventurous. Good Italian or Chinese or Indian or something like that would be fine. Suggestions? Thanks.
La Note was indeed yummy, and I wasn't sure my mother, in particular, would be up for it, but she had the ratatouille and loved it. It was also pricier than what I had expected, but at some point I had to walk away from the discussion and let my family choose. The prices were moderate and the creme brulee au chocolate was great! Nice restaurant, nice ambiance. I would go back.
Not knowing your price point, here are some ideas:
Breads of India
Digs Bistro (I believe that tomorrow night is their last night, so definitely call in advance)
Chez Panisse Cafe
Little Star Pizza (Solano in Albany)
Let us know what you pick!

If Cajun isn't too exotic, then Angeline's might be a good choice. Otherwise closer to your requests, the Trattoria on College is decent italian or perhaps Oliveto. Great China downtown is good or Ajanta for Indian on Solano Ave.
