Downtown Berkeley Lunchtime Restaurant for 20

Any suggestions for sometime later in the week. Five has a limited group menu. Comal, Revival, Corso, Pathos not open for lunch. One person isn’t thrilled about Gather, another chipped a tooth at La Note. We’d like to keep the price around $20. Angeline’s is a possibility, but they start at $25. Great China is closed for the rest of the week.

Our office is downtown but we could travel a little distance. Any kind of food is fine.

Townie, in the old Venezia space on University, might work.

I don’t know whether they’ve kept the semi-private back room that Venezia used to have.

Jupiter is the only place downtown that I’d send such a big crowd to. You might rethink Five. If you can get to Solano, Ajanta, King Tsin, China Village, or Akemi.
