Best shellfish in Berkeley?
I am going to Berkeley next week. Since I've never been to the pacific, I was hoping to celebrate my first travel to California with a night of marine pleasures.
Hence; my question is simple, where should I go to get - say - a good shellfish platter? Or the best oysters in town?
Price is not an issue.
Chez Panisse Cafe sometimes has oysters--always great, but you'd need to check online re the day's menu & try to make a res (easier than it used to be, esp early & late).
Agree re Cafe Rouge.
I'd have to agree with Robert. Cafe Rouge has perhaps the best shellfish in town. Usually everything is top quality, and there is a pretty extensive selection. Be careful, as my recollection is that they don't do the raw bar at lunch. Seems if I found that out the hard way, once.
