Restaurant recommendation off of 680 from Walnut Creek to San jose

There's a whole slew of restaurants on North Main St. in Walnut Creek (Get off at the North Main Exit, & stay to the right)
Note: This is only the Walnut Creek area

My personal favorite is Vanessa's Bisrto2
(Franco-Vietnamese; Tapas menu & Bar);
it's pretty quiet and calm during the day, but at night it gets more lively and you might need to book a table ahead of time (at least an hour). The Calamari is always a favorite there!
There's also Modern China Cafe
They have outdoor seating (be careful of the magnolia tree! the leaves are still falling off!), bar, Dim Sum menu, heat lamps (yay!), the title speaks for itself, it serves a modern twist on most traditional chinese cuisine.

Those are the only two I've actually tried, but you can always check out these:
Kara's Cupcakes (for your sweet tooth) (
)Mel's Diner
Sasa (
Breads of India (
)Erawan Thai Restaurant (
Silk Road Restaurant (
)Dan's Irish sports Bar (
)Pyramid Alehouse (
)Bombay Indian Restaurant
Tomatina (
)Pomegranate (
)1515 Restaurant (
)Havana (


And that's just to name a few (you can also check out North California Blvd.)
