So I have some rather picky and pretentious foodie relatives arriving from EU to stay and I am hoping to wow them with the food around here :)
I am looking for recs for:
1. A great weeknight dinner (party of 10 people- no kids but some who act like brats), hoping for impressive and exotic cuisine (thinking of dim sum or thai- Amarin Thai or Fu Lam Mum, Hong KongSaigon in sunnyvale?)or the best dim sum around. also thought of the korean buffet on el camino...
2. a nice unique but not too pricey restaurant for a birthday dinner (10 again). I was thinking of Cascal in Mountain View, or perhaps another tapas like place? Open to ANY suggestions
3, Best ribs/BBQ around?
I am in Palo Alto and prefer to be as close as possible but willing to drive a bit for a great destination (just tough to fit everyone in cars)
APPRECIATE ANY AND ALL SUGGESTIONS!
