A few of us met recently met for lunch at Riva Cucina in Berkeley. It was a new spot for me and very nice. It was cozy and warm on a rainy day.

Riva Cucina bills themselves as serving Northern Italian cuisine using sustainably sourced ingredients from nearby farms and waters.
I had the Panino Con Pollo. Grilled Petaluma Farms free range chicken breast, avocado, wild arugula, roasted pancetta and aioli.
You can find the lunch menu here. I recommend it if you are in the area.
Do you find yourself getting together with friends more often during the holiday season?
