It's for a family reunion of sorts, and though everyone loves dimsum, most places are just too crowded and noisy on Sunday. (We also tend to sleep too late to get to Koi before it becomes a zoo.) My family enjoys almost every cuisine, but standards are pretty high: one is lives in Vancouver and often eats at Sun Sui Wah and Refuel (color my smiley green) and one is a chef in NY. Right now I'm thinking Mayfield Café, Shalizaar, and Tai Pan. Haven't been to Astaria in a few years. . . Village Pub was okay, but not enough choice on the menu. . .
If there is a place in the City worth a drive from Sunnyvale (and parking), we'd consider that, too.
