I’ve been keeping an eye on the progress of a new restaurant on upper University, and it’s now open for business. eVe (at 1960 University, just below Milvia and next to Chocolatier Blue) is a 28-seat jewel box whose cozy, classy look promises civilized, intimate dinners for two. It’s open from 5:30 to 10:00 pm, Tuesday through Saturday.

With a prix fixe menu that starts at $33 per person, this seems like a date night kind of place that requires a bit more preplanning than the corner Indian joint, so I haven’t tried it yet. I’ll have to invent an anniversary or some other reason.

I’m rooting for owners Christopher and Veronica Laramie, just because I want to see businesses like this thrive in Berkeley. Has anyone been there yet? Can you report back on the experience and the food?
