Alumni In The News: Maker’s Common Is a Restaurant Truly for the People
When restaurant owners talk about building community, it can often feel contrived. Not so at Maker’s Common, a three-month-old spot in downtown Berkeley that was only made possible because of its already strong community.
Maker’s Common comes from Sarah Dvorak, Oliver Dameron, and Eric Miller of San Francisco’s Mission Cheese, which opened in 2011 to national acclaim. When they decided to pursue a second eatery, they already had support from a devoted following.
