First date in downtown San Mateo

Alia | Feb 28, 200506:18 PM

A good friend of mine is having his 1st date/meeting with an eHarmony prospect this Saturday. They are meeting in Central Park around lunch time. I don't know the area too well but I think this park is close to downtown San Mateo.

I saw lots of posts for Japanese places in San Mateo which he's open to, but I think it needs to have the right ambience. Pretty sure she can eat seafood since she sent him a picture of her fishing, so probably not a card carrying PETA member. Thank god, that would be the date from hell for me...

Please help with pinpointing specific Japanese places that are good for conversations in downtown San Mateo. Any other ideas for places within walking distance from Central Park? Maybe something in between Santa and Viognier, in terms of prices and casualness.
