Sunday lunch--Berkeley, near campus
Five people, one of whom uses a wheelchair, will be touring the Cal campus on Sunday. One person is an alumnus who will be revisiting old haunts, but none of us have any recent knowledge of the area. Because of the wheelchair, we don't want to venture too far afield. The youngest person is 55, so we are more interested in the food than the beer.
It's always possible that the alum will want to go to the Bear's LAir, but I'd love some other options. It will probably be a late lunch--2 PM or so.
Thank you for the suggestions. e wound up at Henry's and it was perfect for us. A handicapped spot right behind the building and great food. As a bonus, we had a window seat & watched the Berkeley Streets Criterium Bicycle Race go by--it's a loop so the cyclists kept passing by.
I am under orders to "tell those Chowhound people that the fish tacos were the best I have ever tasted." I liked the garlic fries.
The Cal alum was delighted to discover that the bright red urinal in the men's room is the "Stanford Memorial Urinal."
I'd recommend Bistro Liaison (northside, at Shattuck & Hearst). There's handicapped street parking right in front of the restaurant and they serve Sunday Brunch from 10 until 3. Google their menu:. http://www.liaisonbistro.com/index.htm
