East Bay Spice Company

  • Ticket holders get 10% off; same-day tickets must be presented; excludes tax and gratuity. *

East Bay Spice Company is the brainchild of local East Bay restaurateur, Deepak Aggarwal (Mint Leaf and Khana Peena restaurants). Aggarwal’s audacious idea of turning his Downtown Berkeley Indian buffet restaurant into a progressive craft cocktail bar required him to seek the assistance of some of the state’s most creative mixologists. Aggarwal teamed up with Joel DiGiorgio and Adam Stemmler of Blind Tiger Cocktail Co., a bar and restaurant consulting and management group, to help design the space as well as find the best talent available to manage the unique, spice-driven cocktail program. DiGiorgio, an East Bay native who knows the local bartending community well, quickly tapped Jared Berry (formerly of Berkeley’s Paisan Osteria) and Marguerite Regan (Oakland’s New Easy and San Francisco’s Rye Bar). Together, Berry, Regan, and Stemmler (a top mixologist hailing from San Diego) create unique Indo-Asian spice combinations which are then applied to classic cocktail templates. Aggarwal’s recipes in the kitchen, which is open late (until 2am), compliment the beverage program and bar atmosphere with Indian-fusion street food items, as well as traditional North Indian curries.

Gecko Gecko, Thai-California Eatery is a local, non-corporate, family-owned enterprise that is the result of a creativeness and inventiveness that we longed for and wanted to bring to Thai, and southeast Asian, cooking.

This southern French restaurant is known for rustic bistro fare at lunch and dinner, but at breakfast rumpled locals come in droves to relax over inspired egg dishes, toasted brioche with lavender honey, and oatmeal raspberry or crème fraîche pancakes accompanied by cafe au lait served in bowls so big it’s almost hard to find room for them on the little wooden tables. Charming details—the chunky Provencal pottery, French-country table linens, bowls of jam and brown sugar cubes—make this the next best thing to being in France.

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.

Revival Bar + Kitchen

  • Berkeley Rep’s high-level donors are given a special 10% discount. For information about the Artistic Director’s Circle, please contact Laura Fichtenberg, Director of Individual Giving, at 510 647–2907. *

From snout to tail, from root to shoot, from toes to nose, Revival Bar + Kitchen is going whole-hog on local, sustainable, farm-to-table cuisine. Why whole-hog? Why not just cherry-pick ingredients labeled “organic” or “hormone-free” and call it a day? Because at Revival, we recognize that those labels don’t tell the whole story, and we like stories. So we cultivate relationships with producers—farmers, ranchers, coffee-roasters, and winemakers—who are passionate about their products and have a good sense of how they fit in the community. We’re excited to be part of Downtown Berkeley’s comeback, and we’re bringing the best of what we love—the revelation in a bite of house-cured bacon, the piquancy of a pickled piquillo pepper—to get that revival revved up. There’s nothing like good old-fashioned fermentation to get a community in a ferment. And by complementing our menu with biodynamic wines from innovative local vintners and a seasonal selection of cocktails (traditional, original, and traditional-with-a-twist), we’re all about showing just how exciting sustainability can be.

Sweet Adeline Bakeshop

Sweet Adeline is a neighborhood bakeshop. Everything is made here in small batches; this means we run out of some items on some days. We experiment with desserts until we find out what our customers want. Some of our ingredients are organic and local. We buy much of our fruit from farmers who sell at the Berkeley Farmers’ Market. Our dairy is Clover. Our chocolate is German, Belgian and Californian. There is a great deal of effort and love put into everything we make. What else is the point of a neighborhood bakeshop? Many of our customers are also our friends. It has been a wonderful day in the neighborhood.

Venus Restaurant

  • Ticket holders get 10% off any entrée; same-day tickets must be presented; excludes alcohol, tax, and gratuity. *

Venus Restaurant serves distinctive, seasonal fare in a “polished casual” setting. A favorite dinner spot for theatre-goers, Venus uses the highest quality seasonal produce to create a unique, healthy, and delicious dining experience. The wine list focuses on bio-dynamic and sustainably farmed grapes, and a “New World” style of winemaking. A recent remodel of Venus’ boutique-style dining space is focused towards a chocolate and plum color scheme. A glance through our glass facade reveals a (new) comfortable banquette, which will be accompanied by acoustic improvements, new artwork, and several improvements. All of which compliment a tastefully hip, urban setting.

Zut! On Fourth

  • Ticket holders get 10% off; same-day tickets must be presented; excludes alcohol, tax, and gratuity. *

Zut! offers regional Mediterranean dishes prepared with fresh, locally sourced ingredients by Executive Chef Jim Wimborough. Among the notable offerings at Zut! are fried squash blossoms, local squid stuffed with savory chorizo, and braised white beans with roasted peppers and goat cheese, wood burning rotisserie Watson Ranch lamb, mesquite-grilled whole fish of the day, and slow-cooked tagines. For dessert, diners can enjoy seasonal fresh fruit granita, spiced apple fritters with Pernod, or crostata using house-made plum jam. Not to be missed are the restaurant’s oven-fresh flatbreads, focaccia, and pizzas infused with the flavors of tomatoes, olives, lemon, and herbs.
