In the charming town of Willow Glen (part of San Jose), you’ll find a quaint downtown with several unique shops and restaurants. One of my favorites, is The Table. The first thing you’ll notice as you arrive is the stunning patio. What use to be a tiny, narrow restaurant has expanded into the former cleaners next door, allowing them to take over the entire corner and provide a patio with fireplace, heaters and exponential charm. The food is fresh and seasonal.

During happy hour, the best deal you can find is the “One hitter quitter” burger with aged white cheddar that comes with a shot and a beer for $14. Happy hour is served from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 10:00 p.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday. The staff is very knowledgeable about gluten free options and will be happy to make recommendations and substitutions to accommodate diets of any kind. I get the burger deal (no bun) with a cider during happy hour. The bar also has some great areas to sit on dates, so this is a perfect spot for after-dinner drinks and dessert.
