Juanita & Maude

825 San Pablo Ave. north of Solano
This new place is one of the best restaurants in Albany. Delicious, eclectic California food, with a changing menu depending on what is fresh and in season. Portions are good size, and worth the somewhat high prices. Desserts are terrific too, as is the unusual wine and cocktail list.
