UC Berkeley staff lunch picks

The UCB faculty/staff newspaper, The Berkeleyan, which I edit, polled its readers for their favorite local lunch spots, on or off the campus. We also asked them for their favorite $5 lunch ideas. The results were not terribly revealing from a purely chowish perspective, but the question(s) certainly roused our readership to participate, which we like.

We were as struck by the local institutions that *weren't* mentioned as by any that were: apparently no one eats at Kip's or LaVal's anymore (or, at least, no one who's willing to cop to it!). I was personally happy to see the Stuffed Inn on Euclid get several mentions: though no one's idea of a cutting-edge eatery, it's a big part of my own Berkeley memories circa 1973, and it really hasn't changed much at all in the interim.

Here's a link to the online version (including a slide show):
