I'm going to meet up with someone for dinner in San Carlos tonight, but am totally unfamiliar with any of the restaurants out there. If anybody has a must-go-to suggestion on where we should eat tonight... please let me know. Thanks!
i love santorini's for greek/med or for thai, go to siamese kitchen (across from wells fargo)
and i second piacere and laurel street cafe.
A second vote for Santorini's handcrafted Mediterrainian well above the mean.
A Tivolo is now re-branded and I haven't had any direct experience.
I'll say a kind word about Iron Gate on El Camino (maybe Belmont/San Carlos line). Old line place; it IS "your father's" Italian/continental cuisine -- but they haven't taken their eye off the ball. A fine compromise when entertaining "East Coast parents" or other cuisine-timid types. They didn't balk when I carried in an old Cakebread Cab - decanted it properly. There is something to be said for Oysters Rock preparred the old school way
