Manresa Restaurant in Los Gatos
I don't venture much down to Los Gatos usually, but for a two Michelin star restaurant, any time. There are only 2 two-Michelin star restaurants on the San Francisco peninsula. One was Baume which I have covered before. The other one is Manresa. Both are really quite good. For restaurant setting, Manresa definitely has Baume beaten hands down. Food wise, I think Baume was slightly more consistent. But of course this is all very subjective since both are just wonderful. In either case, let's just say I would not mind to dine at Manresa nightly. Everything I had was done expertly and precisely. Presentation was on point and nothing I had cause me to think what were they thinking. I even got my frozen pea ice cream dessert that is reminiscent of the one I had at Meadowood Restaurant that I loved so much. All in all it was delectable meal that I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone who's traveling to or live around San Jose (or for that matter, SF bay area).
