eVe closing in Berkeley - gonna be a Peruvian Rotisserie called Brasa

What I read from EaterSF: eVe will be closing after New Year's Eve, the owners are going to do a Peruvian rotisserie place called Brasa (hopefully like Limon Rotisserie). They'll be rotisserie chicken, several Peruvian dishes, fresh-squeezed juiced, beer & wine, quick serve lunch & dinner. Plan is to open by Feb 2 after renovations.

  1. at least we still have revival.

    1. Same people cooking?? This sounds like the complete opposite of what they were doing before.

        I am quite sad. I was very fond of eVe. All of my meals there were quite good. Were they not doing well enough to keep going? Or is it a matter of just wanting to open a different kind of place?

          sounds like they got some new investors and may open a larger Eve-like spot in the future.

          "Brasa will give the Laramie's some time to work on that other big thing with their investors. At this point, not much is known about it, except that it will be more in line with the style of eVe. Mysterious."

      2. Any reports on Brasa? It opened Tues 2/21/21, closed Sundays. Hours M-Sat 11:30-8:30p & they take credit cards. 1960 University Ave, Berkeley

          Web site: - not much there yet but it says they're going to add delivery

            i hope they are more attentive to cooking than they show in spelling their address on the first page of their website: "univeristy ave"

            copy editing, anyone?

          2. re: hhc

            no but their FB page says they sold out of anticuchos yesterday - and were amazed that americans were embracing the beef heart dish! i'm looking forward to trying it out.
