Dinner for 2 with Wine Pairings in the Kitchen at Chez Panisse in Berkeley, CA

View all 2 images


You and a guest will be treated to a very special dinner where you will be seated at the Chez Panisse kitchen table and served dinner in the company of the chefs and kitchen staff at world-renowned restaurant Chez Panisse in Berkeley, CA. This incredible dining experience includes wine pairing.

In 1971, Alice Waters and a small band of friends founded a neighborhood bistro called Chez Panisse. It was named for Honoré Panisse, the most generous and life-loving character in Marcel Pagnol’s 1930’s film trilogy about waterfront life in Marseille (Marius, Fanny, and César), as an homage to the sentiment, comedy, and informality of these classic movies.

Alice and Chez Panisse are convinced that the best tasting food is organically and locally grown, and harvested in ways that are ecologically sound by people who are taking care of the land for future generations. The quest for such ingredients has always determined our cuisine. For over 45 years, Chez Panisse has invited diners to partake of the immediacy and excitement of vegetables just out of the garden, fruit right off the branch, and fish straight from the sea. In doing so, Chez Panisse has established a close network of suppliers who, like the restaurant, strive for both environmental harmony and delicious flavor.
