Needed: Business dinner for 4: downtown SJ

bbulkow | Aug 17, 2012 05:00 PM

I'm hosting a business dinner next week, and we chose Chaya in SF --- but the venue moved to SJ downtown. I don't really want to make them drive out to Santana Row, something right downtown near the convention center & hotels is first choice

I am, frankly, clueless about the business options down there.

The guests are east coast, and I know nothing about them - other than that they work for a large and established firm. So typical business parameters: wide enough menu, does everything pretty well, small enough tables to talk, not too formal, not too casual. Arcadia would be overkill I think.

Thoughts on:
71 Saint Peter
McCormick & Schmicts
The grill on the alley
19 Market
The Loft
La Pastaia
Il Fornaio

? others ?

Thanks a ton --- I'm surprised I can't answer this myself.... but I don't go to San Jose to eat at places like this ....
