On a different note, I recently went to Protege in Palo Alto and it was excellent. The non-tasting menu is really good value but their tasting menu is like 4 courses for $120. Still if you want to go to a place that will definitely get a Michelin Star before it gets a star I highly recommend getting reservations there in the near future.

i just made a reservation for this place (a la carte -- gf doesnt eat red meat) thanks.

Hopefully you guys like it. Out of the four Lounge entrees, the risotto was the least good but it was still pretty tasty. The dumplings and "fish and chips" were both really good for appetizers as well.

its a good location between some of the other bigger peninsula cities and has a big 'downtown' city with density. But there are shitloads of restaurants up and down el camino. There's some really good asian food hidden away up this northern end of the peninsula.

I found by accident one of the 4 remaining real oak charcoal grill korean bbq places that have grandfathered permit to let you grill with charcoal at your table, in San Bruno of all places! It just changed owners/chefs a few months ago and was amazing. It's not good for first/second dates because you and your date are going to smell like you went camping, the smoke gets in your hair and clothes.

This particularly rapid unintelligible patter isn't generally heard, and if it is, it doesn't matter.

Sorry, down my part of the Peninsula there are often multiple Korean BBQ places per town, and I assumed San Bruno followed suit. Try that Google in Sunnyvale, for instance.

Look at Burlingame, Redwood City, and Millbrae, not quite the same level, but I think that they all have their city center that has a high concentration of places too.

Oof. I donít know that Iíd do Cliffhouse if you want to eat food that is good, but Iíll say Iíve never eaten brunch there and Iím also not much of a traditional brunch food person. Itís a lot of Sysco prepackaged stuff, like quality of a mediocre hotel banquet.

I like Slanted Door, Waterbar (can be hit or miss but I usually am doing shellfish and booze) or Outerlands (not right on the water) if Iím taking friends out.

Only been there for a wedding & reception, it was acceptable rather than foody, but it sure did have a view.

Does Shadowbrook down near Santa Cruz still do brunch? They were tasty and had a view.

Looking for a place to go with about 10 older guys, it's a dinner club that meets once a month. Usually they'll pick places like Capurro's, or Marcello's, Jeanne D'Arc, that sort of place, which is fine, but as it's my month to pick I'd like something a little more exciting. Was thinking of Violet's, Blue Plate, or Maven. Any one have any experience with those spots or other suggestions?
