The words “Chez Panisse” will always summon certain associations: locally-sourced fresh and organic ingredients, California-cuisine spins on French and Italian inspirations, Alice Waters and her Edible Schoolyard projects, and set-menu restaurant dinners with price tags that can reach three digits. But since 1980, the upstairs Café has offered an alternative that not only makes the standard-setting Chez cuisine affordable (a Menu du Jour of garden lettuces, a pasta main course, and dessert will set you back $30 or less; à la carte courses run roughly $8 to $28), but also comes with the superb service that makes you feel both special and like an old friend. Serves lunch and dinner Mon.–Sat.
