What is your favorite restaurant in Berkeley?

Heading to Berkeley and I'm looking for the best restaurants to try while I'm visiting. Open to all types of food! What are your top places to eat?

Hands down favorite restaurant: Cheese Board Bakery & Cheese. In a land of crappy pizza it's like finding a unicorn in the desert. Great concept and amazing pizza. Go late lunch as it gets really packed. And then afterward grab drinks and live music at Jupiter.

One of my favorite restaurants anywhere is upstairs at Chez Panisse for lunch or dinner.  It's as pure and simple as food can be, and absolutely delicious.

Berkeleyans, and I am one, love César, a tapas place, noisy but lively and pretty inventive, Spanish inspired.  Great drinks.  It is just next door to a don't miss: Chez Panisse. Both are in the North Berkeley area known for years as the Gourmet Ghetto. Just across the street is Cheese Board Bakery & Cheese, another local haunt famous for its long cues for their daily pizza. Best is their heirloom tomato but corn is great too. About three blocks south is Corso Trattoria, pretty good and sometimes great, especially the pastas. Oakland, just next door, has some good spots: À Côté and Pizzaiolo. Also like the bar and Oysters at Café Rouge. Paisan Berkeleyis another one, limited menu but good drinks and pizza. Cross the Bay Bridge and be sure to get to the Slanted Door at the Ferry building in SF.
