Southern Kitchen Los Gatos
You might never guess that one of the best Southern restaurants would be in a Northern California town, but that’s exactly what Southern Kitchen Los Gatos is. Opening in the 1980s, this restaurant has quickly made a name for itself in Los Gatos, CA, and beyond for being the best place to enjoy Southern-style comfort food short of catching a plane to Nashville.
In addition to offering the best in classic Southern hospitality, Southern Kitchen Los Gatos keeps things fresh and interesting by giving each of its classic meals a West Coast twist. For example, you’ve probably had eggs benedict, but you’ve certainly never had it with sliced avocado and an English muffin sandwich with bacon and a grilled tomato garnished with hollandaise sauce, but you can enjoy exactly that if you order Southern Kitchen’s savory “California Benedict.”
Campo di Bocce
It’s not every day that you find an Italian restaurant quite like this one. This Los Gatos, CA establishment is a multi-generation family-owned Italian restaurant that doubles as a fully-fledged Bocce club. The restaurant is affiliated with the US Bocce Federation and regularly hosts local Bocce league tournaments for this distinctly Italian game that dates back to the 18th century.
Come here for a charming outdoor dining experience in a gorgeous Mediterranean setting, and stay for a round or two of bowling’s Italian cousin. Campo di Bocce offers nearly every classic Italian dish imaginable, but we can’t recommend their classic creamy Spaghetti Bolognese enough. If you’re into seafood, you’ll find their Frutti di Mare section to have no shortage of luxuriant options, including sumptuous grilled salmon and Cioppino, a hearty seafood stew in a spicy garlic tomato broth.
