Alex's Take

"The food scene in Berkeley and Oakland is something that has really put this area on the map. We have one famous restaurant called Chez Panisse, which was started by Alice Waters thirty or forty years ago. It was one of the first restaurants to start the whole slow food, organic, locally sourced movement and they're credited with being on the forefront of that and really pioneering it. 

Because of that, a lot of restaurants in the area have chefs who've worked at Chez Panisse for five or ten years, and then they go and start another restaurant [like Bakesale Betty, Bollywood and Ember.] So there's almost like this club of restaurants in Berkeley or Oakland that have someone that worked at Chez Panisse and then started their own spot."
