New Mexican seeks San Jose area advice

Allen | Feb 1, 2006 06:38 PM


Heading out on a roadtrip to San Jose next week.
I've searched this board and already found some good recommendations. I'm still looking for help with:

- clean, casual neighborhood joint for local
microbrews (not a fan of the large brewhouses
that smell like clorox)...oh, and single malt too!

- seafood, especially excellent oyster selection

- anything mildly eccentric but casual and relaxing
(too hard to define, but something with a nice
vibe -- I'm open to most any type of food)

I've got a car and don't mind driving, but I hate parking nightmares. This is why I don't go into San Francisco anymore unless I can take BART. I'll also be visiting Mt. View and Stanford, so anywhere in the area is fair game.

Thanks for the helpl!
