Description

Flea Street has been a Silicon Valley favorite since 1980. The atmosphere is contemporary, sophisticated and inviting, making it the perfect place to meet for cocktails, business meetings and private gatherings. Jesse Ziff Cool, along with her remarkable staff led by Executive Chef Carlos Canada, creates a dining experience that Moreis nurturing, soulful and memorable. The menu is a celebration of the rich Northern California food community: seafood is caught in the nearby Pacific, produce is carefully sourced from local farms, meat is grass-fed or pasture-raised to name just a few. Flea Street offers innovative yet approachable cuisine that showcases the very best of the season. Our lively, yet intimate bar specializes in martinis and unique cocktails using small batch liquors. A large hand-selected wine list features the best of California?s extraordinary vineyards with an emphasis on the local appellation--the Santa Cruz Mountains.

The gnocci with wild … Full review
