food + jazz on the peninsula?

bbulkow | Mar 3, 2010 11:04 AM

The mention of Central Park Bistro's jazz offerings has me wondering what places have good food and some jazz on the side.

The peninsula is terrible for live music, so I'm always on the lookout for restaurants that have live music. Which usually means jazz; dinner jazz. Spots like this seem to come and go. And I'd like food that's as good as possible.

Range: san mateo through Mountain View.

The only one I know of at the moment is Cafe Borrone in Menlo Park on Friday. They have their expanded dinner menu, great panninis, tight and excellent beer and wine list (very fresh high quality beer). Jazz friday nights.

Central Park Bistro - I like the food there. It's no Martin's West, but it's good food well executed. Seems to do complexity well, and interesting combinations. No music listed on their website, but a report of some.

B street and Vine - SM - very little mention here. How's the food?

jzcool in MP had jazz, now gone. Melinda's or something in PA had jazz, replaced by Scotty's which has no jazz and pretty lousy bar food (stick to the skewers). I remember a sign outside Bella Luna in PA (my vote for best pasta in greater PA), but can't find any info.

Any other leads?
