My dad handed me a Franlkin and told me I had to spend it all in one place on a meal with my girlfriend. I would prefer a place around Palo Alto, but we have a car to get to the coast or the city.
Aziza and Incanto both look like good choices for the city. I don't know what's good in the valley in this price range, though. As a student in Palo Alto I have mainly been eating cheap chow for college hounds.
