Since 2009, Gather in Berkeley has showcased truly organic, “head to tail” and “root to shoot” food, craft cocktails, and local wines that reflect the bounty of Northern California. Located in the David Brower Center, the “greenest” building in the East Bay, Gather was inspired by the social and ecological ethos that businesses can positively impact the community and, by extension, the planet. We believe that the way food is produced before it gets to our restaurant is every bit as important as how it is prepared in the kitchen. That means raised naturally, harvested at the right time, delivered with care, and prepared with love. Our goal is to nourish our community on several levels, in a lively, yet relaxed environment which makes use of recycled and repurposed materials in creative ways.

Picante

510 525–3121
picanteberkeley.com

Picante is an expression of love for Mexico. A celebration of real Mexican cuisine, not of those imposters that are poured out of cans. Love is why we grind corn daily for our tortillas, import Mexican herbs, spices, and chiles, and have local artisans craft cheese that replicate the nuances of fresh Mexican cheeses. Love also explains everything from the naturally raised meats we grill, simmer, and stew for some of our dishes, to the Mexican folk art we sleuth out for our walls. Now, the traditional food at Picante may not be coming from a grandmother’s kitchen somewhere in Mexico. But, judging from the reactions we get, it’s pretty close.

Platano Salvadoran Cuisine

510 704–0325
cafeplatano.com

Platano is the desire to bring Salvadoran culture and cuisine in a nice warm atmosphere to the heart of Berkeley, California. Now Chef Nicolas and his brother, Juan, are stepping up to keep the authentic taste of El Salvador and Central America.
