Chicken drumsticks in mustard and white wine sauce served with crispy purple potato paillasson.

The people behind San Francisco’s Two Sisters Bar and Books have re-emerged in Berkeley with a contemporary cafe with touches of Provencal in the new Les Arceaux Cafe and Wine Bar.

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the cafe by business partners and longtime friends Mikha Diaz and Alana O’Neal is a casual cafe during the day and a cozy wine bar at night. O’Neal designed the menu, influenced by her time in France (the cafe name is the name of her favorite farmers market in Montpellier). Diaz has a special influence behind the bar, coming up with the special menu of wine spritzes made with house-made tonics and tinctures.
