My wife and I moved to Palo Alto in January and have yet to find a moderately-priced restaurant we love. On the slightly-higher end, there are a few options we like: Evvia, Mayfield Bakery, Bistro Elan.
For an easy weeknight meal, we've found the options to be amazingly poor. There are so few high-quality fast-casual and high-quality middle-priced restaurants that I'm wondering if I'm missing something.
Wish we would've stayed in San Francisco.
