Fire closes down Intermezzo and Raleighs

Before Thanksgiving, a fire occurred at Cafe Intermezzo and Raleighs on the corner of Haste and Telegraph in Berkeley.

I dont visit Raleighs, but it was a popular hang out for the college kids. I went to Intermezzo frequently for their big salads and sandwiches.

Anyone have info on if either place (specifically Intermezzo for my selfish need of a big salad) is planning to open up at a temporary place? thanks in advance

  1. Not sure about a temp place but the word on the street is they're getting ready to demo the whole building. The majority of the block between Channing and Haste is closed off.

      I was under the impression the other businesses were still open, but vehicle traffic was closed off. Couple this with the impending winter break at Cal and it looks like a pretty bleak month for those businesses indirectly affected by the fire.
