Vegetarian restaurants in Berkeley might once have signaled a dreary approach to eating -- one that focused on health above taste -- but Gather shows us just how much veggie-centric cuisine has grown up. Their menu isn't strictly vegetarian, yet all of their dishes highlight beautiful, seasonal produce in a way that lets the ingredients speak for themselves. The menu changes frequently, but their unique pizzas are always top-notch, and the salads are beautifully composed and balanced. This is food that shows that eating for health doesn't have to mean leaving behind taste or joy in eating, and in fact, it can bring a new appreciation for real, whole, healthy foods.
