La Pena/Cafe Valparaiso: Berkeley

Searched but couldn't find any posts on La Pena's cafe. Went to a great jazz concert last Friday at La Pena (Junius Courtney Big Band--19 piece swing band) The adjoining restaurant, Cafe Valparaiso, had an intriuging menu that included empanadas, caluga de pescado, pastel de choclo (Chilean casserole of chicken, beef, olives, egg, creamy corn), paella and other Chilean, Peruvian, Cuban dishes. Wished I hadn't eaten dinner. I haven't eaten there in over 20 years. Anyone else have more recent experience? (3105 Shattuck/510-841-3800)
