We were planning to go to Manresa next month for my birthday. However financial considerations are making us downsize a bit (it's just the two of us - my husband and myself - in our late 50's - and we are new to N. California, having lived in LA for the past three decades).
I wouldn't want to go to Manresa and not have the full tasting menu, so I'm looking for a back up place. We live in Sunnyvale and have been to Alexander's Steakhouse. Let me clarify - we've been to many places, but offhand, that's the only upscale restaurant in this area I think we have dined at. I lean towards vegetarian/Asian/Mexican - my husband is more of a steak / Italian kinda guy.
Any suggestions for a restaurant in San Jose, Sunnyvale, Campbell, Cupertino, Mountain View, Los Gatos, or Palo Alto where we can have a celebratory dinner for less than $200 and still feel like we had a special experience?
Thanks so much for your advice!
