Your mind is filled with new ideas. Make use of them. -- from our September 2019 fortune cookie
Our self-reinforcing tradition of dinner after our meeting
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.
Near Kepler's Menlo Park
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! But they are closing their doors in September 2019.
1077 El Camino Real, Menlo Park, CA 94025
A little higher on the price scale.
651 Oak Grove Ave, Suite H, Menlo Park, CA 94025
1225 El Camino Real, Menlo Park, CA 94025
241 El Camino Real, Menlo Park 94025
1081 El Camino Real, Menlo Park 94025
Small dining area
407 Lytton Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94301
Parking can be a challenge.
Near Le Boulanger Cupertino
10630 S. De Anza Blvd., Cupertino, CA 95014
We had one of our celebrations here, and it was very well received.
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).
998 S. DeAnza Blvd., San Jose, CA 95129
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).
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.
20807 Stevens Creek Boulevard
Good location, fairly comparable to Le Boulanger, but not as much indoor seating.
20682 Stevens Creek Blvd., Cupertino, CA 95014
I don't remember if the seating is conducive to a group like ours.
