My sister asked me to suggest a restaurant in Berkeley for a birthday dinner for my 30-ish niece. It should be appropriately nice for a birthday celebration but preferably a place where casual dress is OK.
It will still be light outside when we sit down to eat (7pm-ish) so a view would be a plus. Except for their mediocre food something like Skates might work (or has their food improved?). I’m not sure of her food tastes but I know she likes Italian and eats sushi and Indian food. It’s for tomorrow night (Wednesday) so we need some place where we can get same day reservations. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
