Good eats for dinner in the Redwood City - Burlingame Corridor
It's been a while since i've lived on the peninsula (in Oakland now) and am looking to make rsvps for dinner tonite for 4 around 6pm.
What would be your choices - nothing too fussy, but good food and some atmosphere. Open to most food types (excluding Chinese).
Gator's Neo Soul in san mateo for southern food with flare http://www.gatorsneosoul.com
Trapeze in Burlingame I like there appetizers...particularly the polenta cakes with mushrooms www.trapezerestaurant.com
Great Fish tacos in Redwood City Sancho's http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/326582 Not fussy and no reservations needed...cash only.
Here are a few ideas...I'm sure they are not the absolute best spots, but I'm taking my cue from the "not too fussy" and "atmosphere" hopes in your post
*Sushi Sam's in downtown San Mateo
*Luceti's on 25th Avenue in San Mateo
*The Van's in Belmont
*Marvin Gardens in San Carlos
*there seem to be a bunch of worthwhile spots in downtown San Carlos, and there was a humongus thread about it that you could find with the search function
*Old Port Lobster Shack in Redwood City (I think that's the name, on Veteran's Blvd)
*seems like I have read that there are a plethora of good to great Mexican places in RWC, but no names spring to mind
Hope you find a good spot!
