Iyasare

Iyasare
Fourth Street
Berkeley

This tasteful Japanese-inspired restaurant has taken the place of the former O Chamé, my one-time favorite restaurant in Berkeley.iya2

The new place retains the furniture and feel of O Chamé. I’m disappointed they covered up the fresco buddha in the main dining room; for feng shui  it was carved into the wet plaster with a fork.iya3

Service was excellent. My waiter was attentive. iya4My salmon was perfection. More food pics.

Iyasare isn’t cheap, but neither was O Chamé. The menus and pricing reflect what came before.

I’d love to see them resurrect O Chamé’s bowls of soba with great toppings.

I’ll be back.
