Greetings, I will be working at a conference at the Kierland all next week (Sun-Sat) and would love to get dinner recommendations for nearby good food (lunch/breakfast provided so we're covered for those meals). We are coming from San Francisco and are adventurous diners hoping to find local gems and regional specialties. We're more concerned with food quality than views or stunning grounds but will put up with anything if the food is worth it (even cramped space with fluorescent lighting, but it's got to be really good)!
We also are limited to $50 pp range for dinner, don't want to drive very far nor do we wish to dress up very much. This is an annual conference that we've been several times, and we loved Los Sombreros. and the Havana Cafe on our last visit.
I wanted to try these restaurants, but I'm not sure they fall within our budget:
Sol y Sombra.
Ocean something in Kierland
I've looked through the boards here and on yelp and would appreciate any feedback/opinions on these possible restaurants too:
San Carlos Bay Seafood
Also, if there are any not to be missed dishes anywhere, we need to know about them! Thanks for any help.
