Gregoire Restaurant in Berkeley, CA
Crispy potato puffs. Not sold yet? Think fried balls of mashed potatoes. TO DIE FOR. This place is fantastic. Located in North Berkeley, right around the corner from the University of California, Berkeley and world-renowned restaurant Chez Panisse, this tiny take out restaurant is serving up delicious French dishes that are cheap and out of this world. Their buttermilk fried chicken sandwich is probably one of the best things I've ever eaten. AND DID I MENTION THE CRISPY POTATO PUFFS?! The atmosphere is fun and relaxed, the food is absolutely delicious. Chef Grégore Jacquet is killin' it. Guy, you'd love this place!
