dinner for 10+ baby near Milpitas

We are coming from the east coast to San Jose/Milpitas to celebrate a birthday - the "birthday girl" is a new mom and the baby will be joining us - any ideas on an easy place for dinner?

new Irish pub at Logan Square

We had a very pleasant meal at Con Murphy's at the Windsor. The service was great as was the beer selection. The food was well prepared and tasty The best part was a desert of caramel ice cream and cinnamon apples. My compliments to the staff and management - welcome to the neighborhood.

suggestions near Fairmont

We will be staying at the Fairmont in early August - any suggestions for lunch or dinner within an easy walk or quick cab ride from the hotel?

Chinese food quest in the suburbs

We had dinner at Szechuan Garden Inn, on Lancaster Ave(in Ardmore in the parking lot behind the bike store) We were impressed with the food as well as the service. The steamed chicken dumplings were unusally good. When I asked the owner about them, she took great pride in the fact that she makes the noodle dough herself. This is a great hidden find.

We are staying in SLO for a few days in August and would like someone else to do the driving while we do some wine tasting. Can anyone suggest a good tour company?

help with San Jose wedding reception

Since we will have a large reception here on the East Coast this summer, keeping costs down for the wedding in San Jose would certainly help. An interesting ethnic restaurant would work well as would a brunch.

help with San Jose wedding reception

My daughter will be getting married in San Jose this spring. She expects to have about 30 people and wants to have a reception in a private room at a restaruant. Since I have never been to San Jose, helping her find a place is a problem. Please help me help her.!

Vegetarian Dim Sum

Had a great meal at New Harmony Vegetarian in Chinatown. The all you can eat dim sum special for $12 was fresh, cooked to order and varied. Can't wait to go back.

We will be in town for a convention at the end of July and will be staying at the Sheraton. Is there anything interesting near the hotel? We like to try local favorites as well as ethnic restaurants.

Near Se San Diego

the original poster, me, thanks you for your help - the Se San Diego is a new hotel that, I beleive, is in the Gaslight District. We're celebrating our 40th anniversary with a trip to San Diego - our first non businss related visit . We're looking for places a short walk from the hotel that are unlike places we have at home in Philadelphia. Outdoor seating is a plus.

arugula for a crowd

I'm giving an inaugural celebration party with lots of election themed foods and too many people for anything requiring plates and utensils. For fun with President elect Obama's "price of arugula" comments, I would like to make some sort of finger food/dip or spread sort of thing made with arugula. Any ideas?

near Grand Hyatt

yes, at Grand Central so I know I'll enjoy the food court there especially when I'm alone. My husband will have several meetings that involve meals. When we're together, we would like someplace easy and stress free -pub food or ethnic places usually work for us.

Onasis in Cherry Hill

I had a great meal at Onasis, in Cherry Hill, across from the old race track. The owner/chef welcomed us and was helpful in suggesting a fresh fish, on display over ice. All in all, a pretty room with fresh food.

Nice lunch spot in Devon/Stafford area

My mother lives in the area and only likes simple food. She uses a walker so easy parking is a must. We've been having lunch at the Paoli Diner on Lancaster Ave. near 252 and it works for both of us - the Greek specialties are fine for me and she orders pancakes.
