restaurants with that certain "edge"

mike | May 26, 2005 11:35 PM

There is a quality sometimes in a restaurant that is hard to put your finger on. It is just the opposite of eateries that feel tired out and stale. The kind of place I am looking for does not have to be expensive, but it might be.

The new restaurant in the Sharffenberger Chocolate factory in Berkeley has some of what I"m looking for. It is "happening", it has a fresh feeling about it, you get the sense that everybody from cooks to servers is trying hard. It is fun to be at such a place. Are there others?
