A fire was reported at 3:04 a.m. this morning on the grounds of Alice Waters’ Berkeley restaurant, Chez Panisse. No one has been injured, but the restaurant’s front dining area sustained serious damages.

“At this point, it appears to be an exterior fire that worked its way to the interior,” Fire Department Chief Bill Kehoe told ABC News.
