I am proposing to my girlfriend on Easter weekend, and would LOVE suggestions for a fun dinner spot afterwards. Both our families will be in town that weekend, and I was thinking it would be great to have a big bash after I pop the question (.....since she WILL say yes.....right?!?).
I was originally looking for something with a view in the city, like Sutro's, Epic, Waterbar etc. The constraint is that my brother's young children need to go to bed early, so I'm hoping to keep the venue close to his home in Berkeley/Albany.
We were looking at some of the restaurants on Fourth Street in Berkeley (e.g. Eccolo)...and also considered Skates on the Bay, at the Berkeley marina.
Are there any obvious contenders that come to mind? Or maybe something further south in Oakland or Alameda that wouldn't be too much of a drive in view of the kids' early bedtime?
Thanks so much for any suggestions!!!
