Biju's Little Curry Shop (Berkeley)

This second location of this curry shop brings traditional plates from southern India to a cozy dining room. Fill up on curried chicken or masala beef, or create your own bowl with spiced meats and veggies. 

Mas Kaos

Mexican meets Italian in this hybrid between two South Pearl favorites, Kaos Pizzeria and Uno Mas Taqueria y Cantina. Sip on a cold brew as you make the decision between a juicy street taco or a melty slice of Napoli wood-grilled pizza—or just get both. 

Atomic Cowboy (Berkeley)

You can't go wrong with delicious pub food in a friendly and lively atmosphere. Now that Fat Sully's Pizza has joined forces with Atomic Cowboy and Denver Biscuit Company, enjoy huge slices of New York-style pizza or a biscuit sandwich along with your brew.

Revelry Kitchen

You'll find healthy options as well as hearty brunch favorites at this breakfast-focused eatery. Start your day off right with the green chile cheddar biscuits smothered in chorizo gravy or an order of the banana pancakes.

Tennyson St BBQ

Crowd-pleasing barbecue favorites are served in abundance at this casual restaurant. The brisket sandwich (order it with jalapeño cream cheese) is a winner.

Ragin' Hog BBQ

Southern-style BBQ is the draw at this spot. Try the succulent smoked ribs or hot links with your choice of sweet, hot, Memphis, Carolina, or Georgia-style sauces. Daily specials frequently include Cajun and Creole dishes like gumbo and dirty rice.


This low-key burger bar from the owner of popular brunch spot Jelly offers fresh takes on American classics. Order a French onion burger and ginger curry chips, and wash it down with one of the boozy shakes. 

Block & Larder

This modern chophouse features roasted and braised entrees along with burgers, sandwiches, and salads. Try the bison short rib with a harissa barbecue sauce and sides of sweet corn and chickpea succotash.
