I just found out today that I will be going to Santa Clara on Monday for the next week for work. The short time frame won't give me the usual amount of time to research where I'm going to eat (well, I know I'm going to In and out burger, the only question is how many times).
Looking for recommendations for places to chow, from taco trucks to ultra fancy, in the Moutain View, Santa Clara and San Jose areas. Pretty much all food types are welcome, but looking for things that I generally won't get in DC - outstanding, italian traitoria, authentic mexican, "california" cuisine, but also for outstanding sushi or interesting sandwich places.
All help is much appreciated
Oh, one more thing, if there are any excellent wine shops you'd recommend in the same area (probably a bit too vague), but the draconian wine laws in Maryland make pretty much any wine store in California a good one.
