It Takes A Village Pub

Three meals, three restaurants, no workout--tough day. Penninsula Creamery has gone way downhill at their Stanford Mall Location. Barely a 1/5. Horrible service with an attitude. Not worth anymore ASCII characters here.

for dinner because my son Max likes Max's--who'da thunk.

So let's focus on the Village Pub in Woodside 3/5 with promises of a 4 on occasion. Lunch at VP happens 2-3 times a month for me. Stick to the basics and the seasonal treats. A great hamburger with bistro style fries of perfect salinity and crispyness. Expertly done frittata specials. Interesting soups unavailable elsewhere. I do miss their mussel dish. They started their reincarnation 4 years or so ago with a menu that included a farmer's lunch of house cured meats cheeses, greens and breads. While they no longer have it, I was able to reconstruct it by ordering the asparagus and artichoke salad with goat cheese and the salumi and artesian cheese plate. $20 bucks, light lunch, very tasty. I also love the Buetlesman photos of the Crystal Springs area--take a long look at these since their beauty is so close to where we all live, yet the local wilderness is off limits to all but a few friends of the SF Water Department.

I haven't been to the Village Pub in quite awhile for dinner, but have never been disappointed at this restaurant and plan to hit the night option their soon. Looking forward to Vegas next week. Anymore suggestions out there?
