Where to eat dinner in Lafayette?

A quick dinner along Mount Diablo Blvd, preferably near BART.

  1. Kopitiam: Some of the best Singaporean food in the Bay Area, very casual, very friendly.

    1. We've only lived in Lafayette for 4 weeks, so haven't tried everything yet.

      Second Kopitiam. Or Lily's House for Shanghainese (search the board for recs -- but DEFINITELY use the "Chinese Menu" and get the Shanghai rice cakes). Or El Jarro (tortas are great).

      We moved from Oakland, and these are the three places we've found so far that are up to the standard of our regular places over the hills.

      1. Pizzeria Antica is very good and easy to reach from BART. Just walk out the rear of the station and cross the footbridge to the strip of shops that houses Antica.

        Not quick, but the venerable Postino is right across the street.

        Chow is a few blocks further away but is reliably good. And what better place for a "hound" to visit?

        1. If you have a hankerin' for some barbecue, Bo's on Mount Diablo Blvd serves up some of the best in the Bay Area.

          1. There's Chow, Per Tutti and two fairly new restaurants - Gigi's and Metro Lafayette.
