I have really been bitten by the travel bug and have such an insatiable passion for discovering new places. When I was approached by Visit California and Visit Berkeley to spend the day in Berkeley, I was quite excited. When going to the Bay Area, I always stop by San Francisco, but never have explored Berkeley in depth. They recommended to start my day at Gather, to really experience Northern California food. As soon as I stepped inside, I fell in love with the interior decor and ambiance. The executive chef, Charis Wahl believes in sustainable food and having a close relationship with farmers and ranchers. You can really taste it in the food! And if you stopby, I recommend trying their pizzas. You will not be disappointed! After an amazing lunch, I walked a couple blocks over to BAMPFA Museum (Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive). I could have stayed there for hours, getting lost in each painting and sculpture. I left completely inspired! Can't wait to visit again!
