Seems like several of restaurants I used to enjoy in Berkeley (Sea Salt, Fonda, Lalimes) went downhill in the last few years after being taken over by the K2 Restaurant Group. Seems like they were good after the takeover but slowly went downhill. At Lalimes and Sea Salt I noticed a drop in the quality of ingredients and the chefs seemed dispirited. At Fonda they toned down the food so it was more like an expensive Chiles or something. Is this just my impression or coincidence? Does anyone know more about this?
