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

hhc Dec 6, 2011 10:35 PM

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.

      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."

            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?

            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.
