An itemized proposal for a facelift, including kitchen remodel, is available upon request.
Gourmet Gulch, Gourmet Ghetto, Upper Shattuck Avenue, Shattuck & Vine; this popular Berkeley neighborhood is known by various names to its denizens and to visitors from near and far. Located less than a mile north of Downtown Berkeley, this is often considered the birthplace and epicenter of California cuisine. Thanks to the nearby BART Station and central shopping district, Upper Shattuck Avenue is one of the most walkable neighborhoods in Berkeley.
Everything from Uptown and Downtown Oakland to downtown San Francisco is less than an hour commute from the Downtown Berkeley BART Station. The UC Berkeley libraries, museums, performance venues and the Berkeley Arts District are less than a mile away, as are the Solano Avenue and Hopkins Street shops and restaurants.
Live Oak Park, located near Shattuck Avenue between Eunice and Rose Streets, is ideal for everything from morning walks to outdoor sports. Amenities include basketball courts, a volleyball court, lighted tennis courts, picnic areas, and an open-air theater which hosts children’s plays and Shakespearean productions. Just east of Live Oak Park is the Berkeley Art Center which proudly displays a variety of exhibits, art openings, and lectures.
Alice Kahn first used the phrase “Gourmet Ghetto” over 40 years ago. The strip of Shattuck Avenue between Cedar and Vine streets is anchored by Alice Waters’ world-famous Chez Panisse Restaurant & Café, The Cheese Board Collective, and the original Peet’s Coffee & Tea. These restaurants have been neighborhood icons for decades, joined more recently by Saul's Deli, Epicurious, and a host of others, making this a laid-back mecca for those who want to eat, drink, and live well.
