Dinners

Our self-reinforcing tradition of dinner after our meeting is solidifying. We hope to improve our planning, so fewer people will miss the dinner because they couldn't find the restaurant, and perhaps so that we can choose some requiring reservations. Note that each red heading is a link to the relevant website.

Su Hong Eatery

4256 El Camino Real, Palo Alto, CA 94306

An old standby, 4.9 miles SW of Kepler's. The photo of paying the bill was not staged!

Trellis

1077 El Camino Real, Menlo Park, CA 94025
A little higher on the price scale.

Near Le Boulanger Cupertino

Aqui

10630 S. De Anza Blvd., Cupertino, CA 95014
(408) 996-1443
We had one of our celebrations here, and it was very well received.

Sitar Express

21267 Stevens Creek Blvd., #320 Cupertino, CA 95014
The Oaks, Stevens Creek at CA85
$9 Indian buffet 5:30-9:30pm
They seem to be vegetarian now, though some say the buffet has two meat items (chicken).

Holder's Country Inn

998 S. DeAnza Blvd., San Jose, CA 95129
(408) 244-2798
This would be a good location for our meeting as well. We can likely arrange to be served in a back room, mostly to ourselves. Freeway access is easier than Le Boulanger, and the Cupertino location is just as close to the north bay. This is my preference (Frank Nemec).

Hobees

The Oaks Shopping Center
21267 Stevens Creek Blvd. #310, Cupertino, CA 95014
They close at 9pm. I don't think I've been to this location, so I don't know how suitable it would be for a Saturday afternoon/evening. I suspect it will be too busy.

Panera Bread

20807 Stevens Creek Boulevard
408-996-9131
Good location, fairly comparable to Le Boulanger, but not as much indoor seating.

Boudin Bakery

20682 Stevens Creek Blvd., Cupertino, CA 95014
408-638-8006
I don't remember if the seating is conducive to a group like ours.
