Don't have to necessarily stay close to Convention Center
but just found out that brother-in-law is flying up & tonight might be our only opportunity to go out with him.

We think he's staying at Marriott downtown.
Probably doing dinners other nights w/work group.

Any cool places close-by? (to save on the hassle factor?)

We are vegetarians, but occasionally will do seafood.
I guess there is a Scott's downtown somewhere.
Any good?

I vaguely recall eating at some place w/brick walls downtown that was nice, but simple.
Also maybe ate at De Anza hotel years ago,
at a pasta place.

Any other suggestions? I thought I once saw a cute French place downtown? (casual/cute)
Any great Indian that's not too plain inside?

My only other familiarity w/SouthBay dining is in Saratoga,
which might be too hard to take him too. I think he doesn't land 'til 6:30. So probably eating at 8pm.

Not sure if La Fondue open on Mondays, nor if you can just get cheese/dessert or not. Otherwise, too much of a night out I think for a worknight! ;-) There is also Bella Saratoga?
Is it worthwhile? Have never been. Thanks so much for any quick ideas you could send to a mid-Peninsula gal who just doesn't know current eating places in San Jose.
