Chez Panisse Turns 41, Throws Another Edible Schoolyard Fundraiser

You want chard with that?
Our Lady of California Cuisine's Berkeley temple, aka Chez Panisse, turns 41 this summer, and while Alice Waters is not planning on celebrating on as grand a scale as last year's week-long 40th birthday shenanigans, she does plan on hosting an intimate birthday dinner bash on August 25. The meal, which will be a fundraiser for The Edible Schoolyard Project, will be a four-course prix fixe, overseen by current Chez Panisse co-chef Jerome Waag, for $250 (not including wine, tax or tip), and a rep tells us it promises to be more elaborate than the restaurant's usual $100 a head Saturday night menu. But hey, it's for the children. This one is sure to sell out.

Chez Panisse, 1517 Shattuck Ave, Berkeley; 510-548-5525
