Dine Downtown San Jose Restaurant Week is July 11-21

Later this week, one of the largest restaurant weeks in Downtown San Jose history will kick off with 40 participating restaurants. This is a great opportunity to try out fixed price multi-course menus and other specials at discount prices.  

There are many classic and new restaurants on the list. I'm going to highlight a few that I've personally been to:
  • AJI - great Japanese Peruvian fusain restaurant in the lobby of the Signa Hotel (former Fairmont). Have been here several times and it has never disappointed, great for groups.
  • Angkor Chef - Downtown San Jose's first Cambodian restaurant. Affordable and delicious.
  • Club on Post - Great brunch, best Espresso Martini in San Jose. 
  • Cobre & Clay (NEW) - Mexican cuisine at the corner of the San Jose Marriott.
  • Dr. Funk - Tiki bar with outstanding ambiance, great way to surprise guests and friends.
  • EggHead (NEW) - Very popular local chain featuring egg sandwiches.
  • Elyse (NEW) - French Vietnamese fine dining in beautiful expanded space. Perfect date-night. restaurant.
  • Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ (NEW) - the only Japanese BBQ Downtown.
  • ISO Beers (NEW) - They're back and newly remolded! Previously they did not serve food, but I see they have will have dinner specials.
  • Orchestria Palm Court - One of the most unique restaurants I have ever been to. Part museum, part 40's restaurant experience.
  • Petiscos - Downtown San Jose's only Michelin-rated restaurant. Excellent introduction to Portuguese cuisine.
  • Pastelaria by Adega - Petisco's sister restaurant with a focus on Portuguese desserts (amazing egg tarts) and snacks.
  • Rollati (NEW) - Hot addition to the San Jose dining scene and the flagship restaurant around City Hall.
  • Silicon Valley Capital Club (LIMITED ACCESS) - This is Downtown San Jose's only place to dine in the sky. It takes up the penthouse floor at 50 West San Fernando and is actually a private club. It's only open for everyone during Restaurant Week. I'd recommend taking advantage of it and soaking up amazing views of San Jose and Silicon Valley from their giant outdoor balcony.
  • Urban Putt (NEW) - The best minigolf course I have ever done, a true love letter to San Jose. Their food and drinks are surprisingly great and unique as well (Pad thai pizza?). If you haven't been here yet, this is a great reason to go.
