BERKELEY’s BEST ●Restaurants
900 Grayson 900 Grayson St./7th St. Situated within an atmospheric vintage building, this cozy restaurant usually requires a wait. Once inside, it isn’t easy to select from the tantalizing menu choices, but The Demon Lover does seem to be a runaway favorite. It consists of a spectacular crispy fried chicken breast atop an unremarkable waffle and is draped in old-time white chicken gravy; it is fork-licking delicious, but next time I order it, I’m getting it a la carte and ordering just the chicken with a side of gravy and slaw. Herb french fries, a burger, a pulled-pork sandwich, and coriander-crusted rare ahi tuna are also very good. Libations include unique mixed drinks and an agua fresca.
