New Mom's First meal out: Recommendations [Berkeley]

Hello all,

I am part of a group new mom's and want to organize a causal drink and dinner out in Berkeley.

There will be about of us on a Friday around 6:30pm and hoping to find a place that has parking nearby will not be too crowded and will be okay with a group.

My first thoughts were Cesar or Five both both can get pretty crowded.
What are your recommendations?

Hello all,

Want to celebrate my birthday on Wed by picking up great thai takeout and eat at home with family and need your guidance!

I live in north/west Berkeley so can go anywhere from 4th street up to Shattuck but do not want to cross university towards the south.

Some of my favorite dishes are:
spicy chicken wings (not dripping with grease)
stuffed chicken wings
red and yello curry (with lots of veggies)
roasted duck
green beans
