I need a restaurant recommendation for a Berkeley/Oakland Sunday dinner, early evening before a concert... It's for my wife's birthday in March, and it will be a surprise until we arrive.
We haven't been to Sea Salt, but we love A Cote, Citron, Downtown,and Cesar. And we've already blown our child's college fund on Chez Panisse (which is closed on Sundays, anyway)
I'm leaning towards Citron if I can't come with a better idea.
Can the Chowhounds chime in? Are there any hidden gems in Berkland?
