Join us for our 3-part series, sponsored by Visit Berkeley, featuring chefs from Donato & Co, Akemi, and Pompette, who share what’s on their menu for Berkeley Restaurant Week, and what inspires them in the kitchen.

From January 18th through the 28th participating restaurants across Berkeley will be offering special value lunch and dinner menus highlighting the best of the season. Go ahead.
