Berkeley’s Gourmet Ghetto
Greenbelt Alliance board member Bob Johnson will help us explore the birthplace of California cuisine and the contemporary style of coffee shops.
There are some good lessons in what makes pedestrian-friendly, good urban design as our route includes varied historic and contemporary architecture and one of Berkeley’s first city parks. This is one of the many walks featured in Bob Johnson and Janet Byron’s book, Berkeley Walks.

We’ll assemble on the northeast corner of Hearst and Shattuck Avenues. From downtown Berkeley, BART it is four blocks north from the main rotunda exit; it is also on several AC Transit lines; parking is available on nearby residential streets but check signs for possible time limits.
Wear comfortable walking shoes, clothing for warm sun or cool fog, lunch (or money buy something along the walk). If you have questions about this outing, email Ken Lavin or call him at (415) 543-6771 ext 321.
