  2109 Cedar St./Shattuck Ave.; Gourmet Ghetto.  This upscale hole-in-the-wall produces accomplished French take-out fare, and it must be good because California Cuisine guru Alice Waters is a customer.  Chef Grégoire makes everything from scratch using fresh local ingredients.  A few tables are available for dining, but it’s more fun to fax in an order and pick it up dressed in delightful eight-sided corrugated boxes made of recycled material (this is Berkeley).  You can order online from the monthly menu posted at the website.  An example dinner started with thick, tasty mushroom soup, moved on to falling-off-the-bone-tender braised lamb shank Provençal and crispy round potato puffs, and ended with a flaky housemade apple tarte tatin.  Have merci!
