Neighborhood


West Berkeley

The neighborhood of West Berkeley has enjoyed renewed acclaim that has effected to redefine its very namesake. Touted recently with names such as the Berkeley Warehouse district or the San Pablo Corridor, local press (such as BerkeleySide and the San Francisco Chronicle) have endeavored to classify this dynamic mix of industrial, office, arts and crafts, residential, retail and institutional activities in this vital district of the city. A recent culinary resurgence in the area has literally fueled the interest as it feeds the population. Nearby, Standard Fare is a highlight. With roots from Chez Panisse and Café Rouge, Chef/Owner Kelsie Kerr brings California Cuisine’s authenticity to local fare with take-out convenience. Other local favorites offer everything from chicken and waffles (900 Grayson), rustic Italian (Riva Cucina) and even Mexican street food (Tacos El Rey Taco Truck), to name a few. The lucky will stick around and be treated to La Noisette Sweet, a French bakery open just one day a week. Right next door is Morell’s Bread, baking rustic, delicious loaves mostly sold at Berkeley Farmers markets. The Rare Barrell specializes in fantastic sour beers. If the local restaurants inspire you to make use of your gourmet kitchen, nearby Berkeley Bowl West proffers quality ingredients.

Eavesdropping along the sidewalks nearby will prove that the area nourishes more than just one’s stomach. A vibrant artist community is organized around many working studios and an active community calendar of openings and events. Nearby, GlassyBaby is home to a complete glass blowing production. Over on Heinz is Art Works Foundry; a world class bronze casting fabricator offering a peek at museum quality work produced on site.

Getting around is easy, whether on foot, bike or public transportation. Three bus lines serve the area, plus the express bus to San Francisco on 7th Street. The free Emeryville Goround takes passengers to MacArthur Bart.   It’s also an easy walkable (87 walkscore) and bikeable area. The Emeryville greenway in close by and 9th Street is a mapped and traffic controlled Berkeley Bike Blvd. Bike down to Aquatic Park and take the Bay Trail all the way to Pt. Richmond and the Craneway Pavilion or head South to the Bay Bridge Trail to Yerba Buena and Treasure Islands, all along the Bay on a paved pathway.
