The newest great "hot spot" seems to be Perbacco. I'm going there for lunch soon, so I can't personally comment. I've had one of "life's great dinners" at Michael Mina, but the people I went with (who agreed) didn't find the meal anywhere near close on their next visit. I went to Yank Sing awhile back (it had been years, and my first time since they moved to Rincon) and it was good, but not worth the price at all. We all sort of laughed when the bill came. But it was an uncomfortable (YHTBFKM) laugh. You could also consider a BART trip across the bay to Chez Panisse or something else in the Gourmet Ghetto (walkable from Berkeley BART), or to Rockridge and have a great meal at Oliveto.
