Downtown SJ recommendation for tonight?

Pssst | Mar 11, 200403:05 PM

We are going to a memorial service at 7:30 tonight in downtown San Jose. Since we live in SF, traffic is icky and we need to have a stress-free day, I thought we'd go down early, putter about and have dinner but other than a few cheap joints around SJSU, I'm not at all familiar with the dining scene down there.

Any recommendations for someplace laid-back and not too expensive? I'm more concerned about having a quiet meal and getting genuinely good food than any particular cuisine or going someplace hot/trendy.

That said, we do have special fondness for Italian, Mexican (& other latin cuisines), Vietnamese, Thai & Japanese/sushi.

Otherwise, we'll just go to the downtown SJ Original Joes since it was Michael's main birthday restaurant choice when he was growing up.
