Birthday dinner 6/8, looking for the best ever fried chicken

in either east bay or north bay.

I've never had real fried chicken and am dying to have it and can forgo calories ( birthdays don't count right?).
Any suggestions would help.
Thank you.

Just curious [moved from San Francisco Bay Area board]

Probably a dumb question but, why do some popular/busy restaurants NOT take reservations?

Good, reasonably priced Italian in Berkeley/Rockridge

Thank you for all the recommendations, so far Trattoria La Sicilianais on the top of the list.

I have visitors from out f state and we will be in Berkeley Saturday night. My guests want to treat for dinner, but one of them just lost their job I don't want anything expensive. I am just looking for a comfortable place with decent Italian food.

Thank you.

What would you add or subtract from the Chron Top 100 List? 2010

I don't get how Chow made the list. The food is good and fresh and consistent. But I don't think of going to Chows as going out for a great dinner. It's casual, kinda meet friends for lunch kinda place.

I also found sugar free Hersheys semi-sweet chocolate chips which is a dream to my diabetic SO. I already made him a batch of sugar free chocolate chip cookies and he's loving them. I don't know why they don't sell these at regular supermarkets, there are a lot of diabetics out there.
It was $1.99 a pkg.
Good find.

Actually I just came back from GO. I bought some flour tortillas with an experation of 4/9/2010. So I am guessing a supermarket pulled it and sent it to GO which is fine by me, they are perfectly good and cheap!

Grocery Outlet April 2010

I just recently started checking out Grocery Outlet. I love the prices and the unique foods.
But I am still on the fence about it. Someone told me the food is like 2 years old. Another said it is rejected food or tested food that failed.

I am getting frustrated with Safeway, I find it becoming more and more expensive every week and would love to find alternatives ( thankfully, our Farmers Market opens in May) so I would be very happy to use GO and save. Just somewhat apprehensive about it.
