Everyone once in a while you stumble across a band you love, and can’t believe more people aren’t talking about. That’s how we feel about Lalime’s, a neighborhood restaurant in North Berkeley with a cozy atmosphere, a solid wine list, and a constantly changing, mostly French menu. It’s not trying to be trendy at all, it’s filled with locals, and you won’t have trouble making a reservation. We’re not sure why it isn’t more popular, but we’re also not complaining. It’s nice to have a spot you can always get into.
