Alternatives to Chez Panisse for 60th birthday dinner ?

Heike Bartlett | Sep 23, 2003 02:07 AM

It is my Dad's 60th birthday on Thursday and we have reservations for Chez Panisse which we are excited about. However, I checked their menu today and realized that there is squid, sweetbread, bouillabaise and fig tart on the menu for the 25th - none of which my Dad can eat/likes. I am afraid but I will have to give up the reservation. I live in the city but would love to take him out in Berkeley (for the European feel - he is from Germany). Lalime's or Rivoli's ? Alternatively, I was thinking of taking him to Delfina or Blue Plate, two of my favorites in the city. Any ideas/comments ?
Thanks !
