Hubby and I are doing a house exchange at the end of summer with my parents for a weekend so we can spend all our money on food. We'll be in Saratoga and would love to explore restaurants in the area. I already made a Saturday dinner reservation for Manresa, but still need to find places for lunch on Saturday, breakfast/brunch on Sunday.
Dio Deka and Chez TJ were my other choices, but they're not open for lunch on the weekend.
The primary goal is to get tasty food that we can't get where we live, as anything that's not a chain is a hole-in-the-wall featuring Chinese/Mexican/Filipino/Korean/Indian/Vietnamese/Thai/Afghan food. I also skipped over La Fondue and Bella Saratoga, two institutions I've eaten at in the past when I was living there more than 10 years ago. Also, we ate at Zeni one time (while my parents were babysitting) which was good but I think we'd like to try some new places.
I'd love to hear of good recs for quality sashimi down there. We've eaten at Yoshida's (sp?) on De Anza Blvd. in West San Jose/Cupertino before and thought their hamachi was great. The restaurant was also filled with Japanese ex-pats so I assume it's known for being good. Any other good sushi places down in that area we could go to for lunch before Manresa?
I searched for Saratoga, searched for Sunday Brunch in the South Bay, and couldn't come up with places open for lunch OR offering Sunday brunch. Ideas?
