Good spot for "fancy" weekend lunch for eight?

artemis78 | Apr 1, 2012 07:13 PM

We're looking for a good spot for a golden anniversary celebration for eight for a Saturday or Sunday lunch---ideally with a private area or room, but that's not essential. We'd like to stay within an hour and a half of central Oakland but beyond that, we're wide open. The goal is to find something new and a little fancier than our usual special occasion East Bay spots like A Cote, Wood Tavern, Commis, Plum, etc. Lunch is preferable to brunch, but we're open to either.

So far I have Cyrus, Ad Hoc, Auberge du Soleil, Chez Panisse Cafe...any others, especially closer to Oakland? (I don't think there are many stones unturned in Oakland/Berkeley but if anyone has a favorites there that might be under the radar, feel free to suggest!) I didn't see many spots in SF that were open mid-day, but may have missed some. Would love any suggestions you have for restaurants that might be appropriate--thanks!
