Sorry for the long absence, everyone! I've had a number of big changes in my life and to make a long story short, I am moving to the South Bay!
Although I am looking forward to the proximity to all the wonderful Asian food, I will miss my East Bay staple of non-Asian foods very much, namely Luka's Taproom, Pearl for oysters, Oliveto (both upstairs and downstairs).
Can you help me think of South Bay equivalents for these three spots...?
Is Lure in San Mateo an Pearl-like spot? Is there anything like Luka's? Or really good Italian (and I don't mean Italian-American)?
Anywhere within a 30 min radius of San Jose/Santa Clara would be great.
