I knew the owner of Angeline's when he first opened the restaurant. I had written a review of the place on another site and brought in some customers, so he reached out and thanked me, thereby ... read more
starting an online friendship where he would tell me all the going-ons of the restaurant business. I was honored, as I loved this restaurant for both their food and service. During my first visit, I had the jambalaya, hush puppies and the banana fosters bread pudding. All of it was delicious. The workers are all from the South, so authenticity is not an issue. Unfortunately, during my last visit to the place, I discovered the owner whom I had been speaking with passed away just a few months prior. Still, the staff here do a great job and really make an effort to create a memorable dining experience.

I knew the guy who started at Angeline's, and he gave me a free meal during my first visit because I brought up tons of customers from a review I wrote. I finally went back to visit a few years ago and found out he passed away just months before (for unknown reasons). Still, the new manager was close to him and is doing a great job. This is one of the best New Orleans food I've had outside of Louisiana.

The Berkeley Marina is one of the few perfect places to watch the sunset in the Bay Area. There's plenty of action to watch here, from windsurfers to boats passing by. The water is always shimmering ... read more
and it never seems too crowded. It's hard to imagine that such a peaceful area sits so close to the chaos on the other side of the freeway.

When the sun starts setting, this is a beautiful place to spend with a significant other. You can also watch all the water sports people doing their thang.
