Oh hey, South Bay! In case you have any room left after indulging at the Gilroy Garlic Festival, we've got some openings that may pique your interest. Namely, chocolate, plus, farm-to-table fare, and Mexican food. Hungry yet?
Eat dessert first at Timothy Adams Chocolate, now slinging handmade truffles in downtown Palo Alto. Owners Timothy Woods and Adams Hollands have been selling their homemade goods at farmers markets (the two live in Sausalito); the Palo Alto location is their first brick-and-mortar. Truffle flavors will vary, but expect sour cherry, fresh mint, and even absinthe, sourced from local farms and vendors. Wash it all down with an iced or hot chocolate for good measure.
