North Central restaurant Berkeley’s is very, very close to opening, and Eater has the first look at the renovations to the 624 ½ Rutledge Avenue address. Housed in the former Uneeda Sicilian spot, the space underwent major renovations and now boasts a stylish indoor dining room, bar, and spacious patio. Owners Marc and Elizabeth Hudacsko aim for classic and comfortable, wanting to be a go-to for neighborhood gatherings.
Once open (perhaps this week), Berkeley’s will serve a menu that pulls from the owner’s New Jersey background. The restaurant will offer hearty sandwiches, like a French dip and a cheesesteak made famous by the Hudacsko’s former pop-up We Flew South. But, it’s not just in-between-buns options — there will also be a wedge salad, fried calamari, braised short rib, chicken parmesan, roasted salmon, and more. The full menu is at the bottom of this post.
Take a look around the newly polished space at Berkeley’s here and keep an eye out for an opening date.
