The owner of Berkeley's world famous Chez Panisse has set a new opening date after a fire heavily damaged the restaurant.

Chef Alice Waters says Chez Panisse is now scheduled to reopen on June 10. It has been closed since an early morning fire heavily damaged the award winning restaurant on March 8.

Waters says the new building will include some Japanese and American craftsman-style elements.
