Gourmet Ghetto
The North Shattuck area has been popularly known as the “Gourmet Ghetto” since the 1970’s because of its concentration of innovative restaurateurs including Alice Waters, whose world renowned Chez Panisse Restaurant is considered as the cradle of California cuisine.
Other pioneering local businesses are the original Peet’s Coffee & Tea in historic Walnut Square, the collectively owned Cheeseboard bakery and cheese shop, the tiny Juicebar Collective on Vine St., and the Poulet deli, which just celebrated 34 years in business. Gregoire offers fine French-inspired gourmet take-out items from a tiny shop on Cedar Street, a historic former water pumping station has been transformed into Vintage Berkeley Wine shop, and Cha Ya serves up specialty vegan sushi. More longstanding neighborhood favorites include the French Hotel Café, Cha Am Thai, Masse’s Pastries, LoCoco’s Sicilian, and Saul’s Delicatessen.
Annual events include a Wine Walk with sampling by local vintners in area shops, the Taste of North Berkeley restaurant walk, and the Chocolate & Chalk Art Festival - a unique event which brings together artists and chocolate lovers for strolling and sampling of chocolate creations by the area’s restaurants and shops.  The annual Sunday Streets Berkeley closes Shattuck Ave. and Vine St. for a host of activities including yoga and bodywork demonstrations, music, and wine tasting. Dazzling tree lights and a “Snow Day” festival usher in the holiday season. 

Nearby parks and venues include the Live Oak Park and TheatreFirst, the Hillside Club, and the Jewish Community Center, which host a range of plays, author readings, movies and music performances. Berkeley Art Center hosts artist receptions each month, along with films, workshops, and artist talks.
