If you’re on the go and looking for some sweet take out that hits the spot, we suggest Gregoire in Berkeley’s Gourmet Ghetto. This upscale to-go resto is famous for its fried-chicken sammies and potato puffs (yum), and has an ever-changing, seasonal menu. So, you can head back again and again without repeating a dish. A lovely spot to venture to when you’re craving rich, yet healthy bites on the fly. And the small quirks are what make the place extra special. Our fave touch: forks that look like silver, but are actually plastic? Good for a giggle.
Gregoire, 2109 Cedar Street (at Shattuck Street); 510-883-1893.
