The Tasting KitchenNew American • Venice, United States
So many Oregon wines I almost feel homesick
Ask for Chris, he's really great and have a "Last tango in El Modena"
The garlic noodles are a must, one of my top 5 favorite dishes in OC.
Amazing fried rice, have the C-Set!
Andales in terminal 3 has decent food...
Farmers Market in terminal A between gates 8&9 is your best bet for decent food.
This place is classic, so order the classics, oysters Rockefeller, Caesar tableside, baked Brie, crab cakes, pepper steak, you get the idea. It's especially charming during the holidays.
Have the chicken, duh. The Ceaser and French toast are solid as well.
Have a Mai tai, or 2 if you're feeling reckless.
Order a Hanky Panky and the toast with duck liver.
Anti pasti and pastas are solid, put your name on the wait list and head up the street to Southern Pacific Brewery for a beer while you wait.
An ancient and iconic bar that knows how to make classic cocktails and they do it very well. PS: don't pee in the troughs, that haven't done that in years, I don't suggest starting it again :)
Grab some salumi from boccalone and sit on the bench out back by the water.
Totally worth the trip to Berkeley. One of the most perfect dinning experiences in the country. Although not listed on the menu they offer wine pairings, very solid.
