Good Eats, Shorts, and a Grandma in South Bay

extramsg | Aug 21, 200607:37 PM     24

Okay, I'm back down here with a friend who has business meetings all day. I'm also visiting family. But if anyone wants a lunch partner at a great place, I should be available most everyday......

But my real question is where I should go with my grandma for dinner. Here's the problem. I forgot to bring pants. In the PNW, we don't have to wear pants. I can go to any restaurant in Portland and wear shorts and not feel like a loser -- at least not in summer.

Last time I was down, my grandma and I had an excellent meal at Amber based on the recs here. I also went to several places recommended in this thread:

I'm going to go to one for lunch today in just a few minutes, too. (My friend is in Mountain View, so Indian is aplenty.)

I'd like a midscale place that my grandma can be comfortable -- not too noisy and not too divish, if possible. But somewhere with really good food in most any cuisine. Oh, and it'd help if I didn't have to go buy a pair of pants today.

She lives in Los Gatos so not too far from there would also be helpful.

btw, I'm lazy, but eventually I will post pics and reports on my last big food visit. I ate A LOT of good food because of Chowhound. (Last night I had a very good meal at Ruen Pair in Albany also from recs here.)
