How it All StartedRuss and Sherry Berger opened their first restaurant in December of 1990, Blue Wave Grill & Bar, on Berkeley Street in Boston's South End. The restaurant was a California inspired theme with high ceilings, white walls adorned with vibrant local art, pickled hard wood floors, glass block walls, blue neon accents and sand box tables, truly the first of it's kind in Boston.The menu was eclectic California cuisine, emphasising colorful, flavorful and fresh!
Shortly later, the couple opened Moka California Cafe, the first coffee house in the South End. Moka was open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, but the main draw was the giant coffee drinks and homemade baked goods.
