Hi! I often am looking for food after leaving the theater ( not the downtown berkeley entertainment district but near ashby ). Usually it’s on the later side - like 9:30 to 10 - on a friday or saturday.
Nothing sensible is within a walk of the theater, so I would want good parking. Temescal is in easy reach, I probably wouldn’t go further sounth than north-downdown - we’ve gone to Mua once or twice but the parking there isn’t so great.
After the theater, which is often very intense, I’d like a glass of wine or beer. Even with a 9:45 arrival we like to linger a bit and not be rushed. However, we’re happy to put in our order quick, just as long as we can enjoy our food and talk about the play ( thus, not so loud ).
I’ve scowered the usual suspects on Yelp, and we often end up at Long Branch. Which usually has at least one really interesting and good dish, and a nice beer board, and parking, but one wants to expand ones horizons, yes?
