7x7 asks the city's chefs for the recipes to their most loved cocktails, bar snacks, starters, mains, and desserts. If there's a dish you can't stop thinking about and want to make at home, email email@example.com. Your wish may end up on the blog, along with the actual recipe from the chef.

There are sunny days ahead, South Bay—summer's in full force, and there's no time like the present to get out and soak it in with a little barbecue (or maybe a pizza party) on the side. And who doesn't love hummus on a hot day? Thankfully, there are new spots in Palo Alto and Mountain View to help.
