Need a little help with this one since I don't usually dine in the South Bay area (Mountain View to San Jose). I have a relative coming in from another country and wanted to show him what a good American piece of steak tastes like. I have searched the board but no recent discussions have talked about where to go for great steaks. The names I see mentioned include Birks, Grill at the Alley, Blake's,, Alexanders. Heard Forbes Mill is also very good but I think it is a bit out of the way. Can any one vouch for these establishments. Thanks in advance.
