"Steak, Apple, Molly and a Pint of Guiness"

This is the famous 4th Street Mall section of Berkeley, known for it boutiques and restaurants. There’s lots of stuff to do here. I’ve only been a couple of times but here are my favorites so far:

1. O Chame: A Japanese place with great pancakes and pretty good Tempura.

2. Cafe Rouge: A Berkeley style steakhouse with its own butcher inside.

3. Zut: I haven’t been here yet, but this American style restaurant with its Mediterranean spin looks really great.

4. 4th Street Yoga: Definitely want to check this place out (though there are definitely no shortage of Yoga places in the East Bay).

5. The Apple Store of course--can’t live without one of these.

6. The Molly B clothing boutique

7. Jigsaw London for the bags mostly

8. Books Inc.

9. The Peets (always need some Joe)

10. Brennan’s Irish Hofbrau for when I need a pint of Guinness. (Okay so it is technically not on 4th Street and is south of University, but its close of enough for horseshoes, hand-grenades and Irish pubs, right?)

I’m sure I will continue to change this list as I discover new favorites.
