I am going to be spending a week in San Jose in July for work. I was hoping that I'd be able to get some recommendations for things to do in the evenings after work as well as really great places to have dinner.
As far as restaurants, as my screen name says, I am an ex-chef, so I'd prefer to find places to go where the food will be amazing. I'd prefer to stay away from chains and other mundane stuff. If at all possible, I'd love to go to the places where the locals go to eat, not the touristy places.
I look forward to hearing some thoughts.
