New (Non-Downtown) San Jose Restaurants!

There have been a ton of anonymous posts on the blog mentioning new restaurants that are opening all around San Jose. I am conveniently grouping all of the non-Downtown ones into this post. Again most of the posts were anonymous, so feel free to take credit in the comments if you submitted these =).

  • Santana Row
    • Fogo de Chao (replacing Chili's) - epic win for San Jose... this is a world-renowned and highly-rated Brazilian steakhouse. The only other location in California is in Beverly Hills.
  • Nicholson Plaza (N. First, center with Round Table and Subway)
    • EatViet - this looks like a Vietnamese version of Chipotle, pretty interesting concept
  • Crescent Village
  • Brokaw Commons
  • @First
    • Sajj - Falafels, Shawarmas, and other Mediterranean fare
  • San Jose Market Center (Coleman, on Downtown's border)

  1. I was so excited to see a Chick-fil-a will be opening near downtown...except I can't find information to confirm that on the CFA site or a quick web search. Instead, I found that CFA got a permit to build in Sunnyvale (http://www.bizjournals.com/sanjose/news/2013/05/21/chick-fil-a-coming-to-sunnyvale-only.html?page=all). Can you confirm if there is ALSO one coming to San Jose Market Center?

  3. Chick-Fil-A at Market Center was mentioned on the Real Estate tour that took place in May. I believe this is the development permit: PD13-021 (address is 675 Coleman Ave).

  4. Can someone please confirm the Smashburger location on Coleman? It's not listed anywhere on their website, but I would DIE of happiness if this were true!
