Are your tummies ready? 'Cause Silicon Valley Spring Restaurant Week starts today (April 24-May 1). And since it's no secret that Yelpers are foodie fans, it only made sense that the South Bay Elite Squad helped kick off this week of prix-fixe menus at a local favorite, California Cafe – Los Gatos.
"SV restaurant week is my favorite week of the year! When they announced there will be TWO this year (seasonal: spring and fall), I almost died of happiness," squealed Kailey O. About 60+ Yelpers nodded their heads in agreement and made it out to Los Gatos on a sunny Wednesday afternoon to enjoy all sorts of wonderful appetizers, including crab cakes, stuffed mushrooms, shrimp cocktail and gourmet sliders. Plus, "the mango-pineapple-basil sangria was a'flowin'," noted Jen O. "Servers very attentively fetched refills for us and were all around just fun, getting us in the spirit of SV Restaurant Week."
Also on-hand were a few #SVRW organizers, mixing and mingling with the crowd. They were also there to say "thanks" for being so supportive of this week-long promotion and to encourage Yelpers to provide feedback about the restaurants they visit. And if there was any restaurant missing off the lineup, encourage them to participate next year!
"Wow! What an awesome patio venue for an awesome warm day, exclaimed Janet O. I've always liked this restaurant and spent many a work party here. Free flowing sangria for all Elitess with a very talented bartender 🙂 The spread was very awesome. My favorite was the sliders. The crab cake and mushroom was very good. There were cheese plates and fruit plates and shrimp cocktail. This venue brought back many fun memories! Thank you California Cafe – Los Gatos and Andre (GM) for letting Yelpers enjoy your hospitality!"
