mrsmicah and I will be visiting friends in Menlo Park next month and trying to decide where to eat for our one night in the area. We eat mostly vegetarian but also do poultry and fish.
From reading through some recent threads it sounds like there's an outstanding assortment of Indian restaurants in the area, but my head is spinning a bit from all of the choices, especially since I don't know all that much about Indian cuisine (except that we really enjoy it) or Silicon Valley geography.
Any specific recommendations for a leisurely sit-down dinner? It doesn't have to be fancy, but we probably want table service (unless there's a counter service joint that's really unique).
The ideal place would have lots of vegetarian choices and be something we can't easily find in NYC.
We'd also be interested in other unique (non-Indian) places in the area for lunch or dinner.
