VILLAGE California Bistro and Wine Bar, San Jose, CA

Located on the hip and trendy Santana Row, this bistro and wine bar has the best of both worlds – great food and over 300 wines to choose from. Of course, we just HAD to order a bottle with the dishes below.

Micro Ratatouille, Crispy ‘Confit Style' Potato, Veal Demi Glaze

Suni opted for meat, of course, and wasn't disappointed. The veal demi glaze was outstanding, the meat tender, and even the squash very tasty.

Crab and Mascarpone Ravioli, Vanilla Buerre Blanc

Not on the regular dinner menu, this daily special featured local wild salmon from the nearby rivers - and I couldn’t pass up a chance to try it. The salmon was mild and cooked perfectly, while the stronger flavor of the crab and mascarpone ravioli balanced the dish nicely. Top it off with a hint of vanilla, and the dish was complete.
