ohmygodohmygodohmygod!!! Cathy and I are in Berkeley to see Peter Mulvey at the Freight and Salvage tonight. While driving around looking for somewhere to eat dinner (and the BART station for pictures) we stumbled across ‘Fellini’ on the corner of Acton and University. An unassuming place on the outside but interesting on the inside.
Classic film posters, strong colors. Pretty cool place. But the icing on the cake was when we were choosing our drinks. With the antibiotics I’m currently on I skipped the wine this time and started right with the sodas. Ohmygodohmygodohmygod… They serve SPRECHER root beer!!!!! The first restaurant I’ve found outside of Wisconsin that does. [thud] picking up my jaw I quickly ordered. The waiter was equally enthusiastic. Cathy CAN drink so she chose the ‘Arrogant Bastard Ale’. quite good. Dinner consisted of mushroom risotto with asparagus in a cream sauce for me. Cath had the ‘gypsy salad’.
When in Berkeley… Eat here! You won’t be sorry. Cath and I recommend the roasted asparagus appetizer. Delicious!
