“Gather is a values-based concept that exists to serve and give back to the community, honor and support local, sustainable producers, serve thoughtful, clean dishes and drinks, and build a familial team environment.
We work with tremendously talented farmers, ranchers, and artisan food producers who utilize cutting-edge sustainable production methods. In addition, all our spices, flours, oils, vinegars, and legumes are organic.”
English pea dumplings with snap peas, young carrots, house farmer’s cheese, chocolate, and mint; spicy tomato pizza with olives, capers, cashew purée, and chili oil; Marin Sun Farms thirty-six-ounce grass-fed bone-in ribeye for two with béarnaise, duck fat fingerlings, grilled gem hearts, slow-cooked alliums, and boquerones dressing.
Tucked into a downtown Berkeley building that’s reputed to be the most environmentally friendly in the East Bay, Gather has been synonymous with organic dining since it opened in 2009. The restaurant’s seasonal creative Californian cooking is equally accommodating of meat-eaters and herbivores, with delicious options for both. The spacious, glass-enclosed restaurant is also known for its dynamic cocktail program, some of the proceeds of which are donated to various charitable organizations.
“Gather has established itself as the go-to place for righteous vegetarians and unrepentant carnivores who can forgive one another their culinary dogmas and trespasses.” –Derk Richardson, Oakland Magazine
