A while back I did some research here to see what was good within walking distance of Cal, and checked out many of the most recommended places. But today I was walking around at lunchtime and it occurred to me that there are hundreds and hundreds of places that may not regularly appear in people's top five but which are perfectly good places to eat if you're in the area a lot, which I am. So...
...what would you all recommend that's not on this list? (Note: this list includes both good and bad - it's not a list of my favorites.)
Arinell Pizza, Blondie's, Cafe de la Paz, Cafe Durant, Caffe Intermezzo, Caffe Strada, Cancun Taqueria, Cesar, C'est Cafe, Chaat Cafe, Cha-Ya, Cheese Board, Chez Panisse, Chipotle, Crepes a Go Go, Eat a Pita, El Sombrero, Ethiopia Restaurant, Extreme Pizza, Fat Slice, Gelateria Naia, Gelato Milano, Gregoire, High Tech Burrito, House of Curries, I.B.'s, Ici, Juice Appeal, La Burrita, La Cascada, La Mediterranee, La Note, LaVal's, Lo Coco's, Long Life Vegi House, Mario's La Fiesta, Masse's Pastries, Michelle's, Naan N Curry, Noah's Bagels, Pane e Cioccolata, Pie in the Sky, Planet Juice, Ryowa, Soop, Taste, Udupi Palace, Vegi Food, Venus, Yogurt Park
Again, this isn't a "I want one really good lunch on such-and-such a date" type of thing - I'd just like to know where knowledgeable locals eat and where they avoid. Gourmet Ghetto, Shattuck, Telegraph, College - anything that's within reasonable walking distance of campus. Thanks so much!
