When: Fri., June 7, 5-10 p.m. 2013
One of the East Bay's most historic hotels honors its long history in the best possible way: with food. While its bar is closed during renovations, FIVE (2086 Allston Way, Berkeley) is offering a pop-up restaurant in its Crystal Dining Room throughout the first week of June, with dishes and decor themed around the year 1910, when the hotel first opened. In addition to a la carte service, a Friday-only four-course prix-fixe dinner includes such retro dishes as Waldorf salad, filet of sole Oscar, Delta asparagus, and creamy Pavlova.
