Lazy Dog Restaurant in Cupertino CAValentine’s Day, a day to celebrate the love you share in your life. Why not share it with the ones who frequently lavish us with unconditional love – our dogs!

Lazy Dog Restaurant and Bar is a  chain with locations in a few western states, though primarily in California. I recently visited the Cupertino branch and was surprised to see how dog friendly the place was. The patio welcomed canine guests and even offered a small menu of dog meals. No stealing from my plate, Spot, you’ve got your own!

Menu items include classy and exotic renditions of comforting favorites, such as Sweet Potato Tater Tots, Bison Burgers, Teriyaki rice bowls, and a family size take on s’mores. With a vast range of options, there’s something for everyone (even your furry friend). And did I mention there’s a full bar? Open daily, Lazy Dog Cupertino also offers a weekend brunch menu, happy hour services, and a number of take-out options which you can even order online.

So store your chocolate somewhere safe and spend some quality time with your furry friend (or your human friends) this week. They deserve some Valentines love, too.

Please keep in mind that while your pooch and you are welcome together, all health regulations apply and must be followed strictly for the health and happiness of everyone. Don’t worry, the rules are simple and Lazy Dog has a cute infographic to make it easy to remember!

La Petit Bistro Crepe DessertDelicious French food and great service are the order of the day at Le Petit Bistro in Mountain View.  Recently, my extended family and I celebrated a milestone birthday there for one of the relatives.  Apparently this is not uncommon, as we heard two other tables sing Happy Birthday to You during our time there, also.

The restaurant is comfortable,  on the small side and the service is personal.  We found that our needs were promptly addressed for water, more bread, ordering, or anything else that we might need, but it was done in a very friendly and unhurried manner.

A good sized selection of foods and preparation styles were offered: fish, pork, beef, lamb and vegetarian entrees were available. There was something for everyone.  Between us, we enjoyed soups, salads and mussels for the first course.  The main courses that we ordered included beautifully presented lamb chops, pepper steak, and pork medallions.  At our table, we savored a variety of desserts, too: a fruit crepe (inside had fresh fruit and whipped cream), chocoloate mousse, and apple pie.  All of it was absolutely delicious.

By all means, I would go back, and not just to celebrate a birthday.  For that reason, I’m happy to write about it here – go give it a try, if you haven’t been already!  You will not be disappointed.

Malibu Grill in San Jose - menu

Malibu Grill in San Jose - menu

Malibu Grill is a Silicon Valley sports bar and hamburger place (and more, of course – baby back ribs, chicken, pizza, pasta) with the dual themes of surfing and all things athletic.  Jim and I occasionally pop over there for lunch or dinner as it’s just a few blocks from our neighborhood, Belwood of Los Gatos and we like the food, service, ambiance and prices.  Today we did again and happened to be there for Monday Madness Hamburgers, which save patrons a couple of bucks. That’s always nice!

A casual but friendly and comfortable restaurant, the Malibu Grill features a broad array of tasty burgers, sandwiches, and other items from the grill. It’s not all fried or carby food, though.  Today I ordered the Malibu Burger (basically a cheeseburger) with a side green salad rather than the fries (for $1 more or I could have had cole slaw, potato salad or fries at no extra cost).
