Chez Panisse--How's the food, really?

ginael | Oct 19, 200803:03 PM     47

Cheers SF Chowhounders. I've read so many wonderful things about the famous Chez Panisse. I'm a neophyte foodie in SD who will be in the SF area around Christmas and am very curious about Panisse. I consider myself a quasi-vegetarian (no beef or pork, rarely chicken, love fish and veggies), but not very adventurous with food. I'd love to get feedback on the food at Chez Panisse, and if it's worth the drive from SF to Berkeley to see what all the fanfare is about! For the most part I am just curious about this famous restaurant and cafe that seems to have started the local, sustainable food craze in CA (and now across the country). Thanks in advance for the feedback.
