Does Rockridge's Chu, which was listed as a good-value restaurant in the 2011 Michelin Guide, merit a return visit? lexdevil, who admired the upscale décor but thought the food was just so-so on a previous visit, wonders if they've upped their game.
The board is strangely empty of Chu reports, but in response to lexdevil's question JasmineG says her family likes the takeout there, and she especially favors the beef skewers, which are not on the menu. Glencora tippled at Chu's happy hour, which included wine, snacks, and cocktails for around $5. She recommends the ceviche, mussels, and tea-smoked duck bao.
