Berkeley: Spenger’s Fresh Fish Grotto (CLOSED); restaurant review

80 North

The new Sunday brunch buffet at Spenger's--CLOSED--includes omelette/waffle and prime rib/ham carving stations, fresh fruit, seasonal fresh shell fish (usually the seafood trifecta of crab, prawns, oysters), smoked red salmon, talapia and catfish items, crispy romaine lettuce and delicious dressing, breakfast pastries, and more, plus coffee, tea, and soda ($29.95, age 10 and under $10.95). In fact there are so many delicious options that I barely made a dent in them, yet I ate little more for the rest of the day. A bottomless Mimosa or glass of sparkling wine is $8. Seating in the central “snugs room” is light and cheery, while the comfy booths lining the bar buffet are darker but also closer to the food.
