Also on tap are postgrad favorites: Like a middle schooler's brief glance at the salad bar before veering toward pizza, the name "Homeroom" almost never happened. After the Big Mac glitch, the team started an online naming contest asking the public for ideas in exchange for a lifetime of mac 'n' cheese. But, after suggestions such as "Macsterbation" and "Hellaroni," they ultimately came up with "Homeroom" themselves.
A design concept, which before had only been vaguely "vintage," quickly solidified, and a restaurant-size do-it-yourself project was under way. Other than the walls, electricity and plumbing - which both agreed wasn't worth the DIY risk - the two envisioned most of the space themselves. They hired Berkeley's Abueg Morris Architects and, on their own, salvaged wood, repurposed furniture found on Craigslist, and searched craft magazines for decoration ideas. Perhaps the biggest DIY win: For the restaurant's large chalkboard wall, they commissioned Bay Area artist Melissa Garden to paint a paper airplane logo and a map of California with playful icons to represent parts of the state - think Big Foot and crab.
Though it looks like chalk, it isn't erasable.
The rest of the wall is open for customers' doodles, which are wiped off at the end of the day, just like at school. The school theme filtered into practical parts of the restaurant as well. Waiters carry plates on plastic lunch trays and customer's "library cards" - frequent-diner records - are stored in wooden card catalog drawers from a water-use library, bought from a UC Berkeley librarian.
While we still decided on our entrees, we ordered homemade buttermilk biscuits, which are served with honey butter. They were made perfectly to spread sweet and creamy honey butter into all of those nooks and crannies. Homeroom had a unique spin on it, by combining it with what tasted like a lavender iced tea and limeade.
Food and ambience
I love the gradient of the colors before you mix the drinks together. Eventually, we settled on two, well-rounded options that we could both sample. My sister ordered the Gilroy Mac. I immediately knew it had to be garlicky and was not disappointed. This macaroni and cheese features creamy Gouda, sharp pecorino and just the right amount of roasted local Gilroy garlic.
You can taste the smokiness of the Gouda and the saltiness of the pecorino, and the garlic brings all of the flavors together. I ordered the Mac the Goat. Our favorite line, "The revolution we need is not just ousting powerful men behaving badly, but elevating the status of women behaving well.
