Grub Street broke the news last fall that 40-year-old Chester's Bayview Cafe in Berkeley was closing and making way for a French spot called La Fable. And La Fable (not to be confused with the recently opened Fable in the Castro) is now open, as Berkeleyside reports, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The owners are Franck and Isabel Bochaton, and they are, in fact, French, and you can expect things like French onion soup, crepes, pastas, charcuterie, and a pretty upstairs deck overlooking the Bay.

La Fable - 1508 Walnut Street, Berkeley - 510-849-9995 - Open daily 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
