Silicon Valley Eats
It's the week we've all been waiting for — feasts, leftovers, and epic afternoon naps. The South Bay has you covered with a few delicious Thanksgiving meals out (if you're still scrambling for plans), plus a Santa Cruz Beer Tour that will have you feeling all kinds of jolly this weekend.
Happy Friday, South Bay! It's relatively quiet week on the food news front, but there are still a couple noteworthy tidbits to discuss: specifically, a Beaujolais Nouveau celebration and a new hotspot for Indian food.
You can cover all of your bases in the South Bay, from an all-star pop-up to a restaurant with a philanthropic backbone. Also, ramen. Lots of it. Let’s get started.
It’s a busy week for eating down in the South Bay, with a Bacon and Brew Fest in the works, chef-inspired hot dogs for eating, and destination-worthy French food to seek out.
It's a slow week for restaurant openings in the South Bay, but don't be discouraged, avid eaters! There's a slew of openings on the horizon; take this opportunity to regroup and revisit some favorites. Oh, and there's a Burlingame block party that you are not going to want to miss.
Fire it up, South Bay — this week's openings are all about the grill, and the delicious meaty (and vegetarian!) goodness that comes with it. Plus, authentic Thai food and all-you-can-eat sushi, for good measure.
It may be Fogust up in San Francisco, but the sun's shining brightly on the South Bay this week. Celebrate the Vitamin D intake with a swath of new openings, covering a wide range of tasty cuisines.
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.
Hungry for some dining action, South Bay edition? It's all happening in San Jose, with a downtown-centric Restaurant Week and a brand new build-your-own-pizza spot.
