About North Berkeley
UC Berkeley may be known for political protests, but North Berkeley started the slow food revolution. Chez Panisse restaurant was founded in 1973 by food activist Alice Waters to offer local, sustainable California cuisine—her radical experiment established America's organic food culture. The area of Shattuck where the restaurant still serves guests is known as the Gourmet Ghetto. The collectively owned and operated Cheeseboard creates a daily seasonal and vegetarian pizza. Nearby Fourth Street is a wide avenue lined with shops, galleries, bookstores and cafés.
