They recently hired a new chef from Napa who is redoing the entire menu to reflect his dedication to local, organic, slow food. Downtown San Jose is sorely lacking in this kind of restaurant, and ESPECIALLY at this price point. My bf and I stopped in for happy hour to check it out. He is gluten free, so we started to ask questions about the menu, and the chef came out and gave us his guidance on the menu, and also offered to modify many dishes for us. In the end, we asked him to serve us several dishes of HIS choice, and they were indeed fabulous. FRESH seaweed salad (OMG awesome, not like the slimy stuff at the store with the sushi), and the entrees were delicious. Most of the entrees are sub $20, so we can afford to go back often. Only downside is the newness of the menu-- he explained that there may be some hiccups in the service in the next couple of months as the servers and staff get used to the new menu and the new concept. We'll be back for the food. Can't speak to the club, never been there that late, but I think they have new management as well as a new chef, so the club may be run differently than in the past. We experienced excellent and personable service, but we were sitting in the bar fairly early on a weeknight.
