Back in the 1960s Ruth Reichl chopped vegetables in the kitchen of Swallow, a small café near UC Berkeley. Reichl moved on to become the editor in chief of Gourmet magazine, but the restaurant that now occupies Swallow’s former space is still pure Berkeley. Café Muse, the eatery at the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, serves up raw and vegan food, fair-trade coffee, and naturally raised meat and poultry. The cafeteria hums with activity as students, professors, and film buffs chat over entrées such as the raw lasagna made from thin strips of vegetables or the chipotle barbequed chicken quesadillas with avocado and cumin sour cream. Lunch daily, dinner Thursdays only.
