Alice Waters’ Café Fanny bites the dust

Thursday, March 8, 2012

image“Restaurant goes under” isn’t necessarily news, unless one of the co-owners happens to be Chez Panisse restaurateur Alice Waters. Café Fanny, opened by Jim Maser and Waters, his sister-in-law, 28 years ago on Berkeley's San Pablo Avenue is closing tomorrow. Staffers, still reeling after just finding out today, tell Berkeleyside’s Tracey Taylor they were told the seemingly popular, casual European-style eatery is no longer financially viable.

Noted: As for notice, still no mention of the closing on the restaurant’s website.
