.Best Of Silicon Valley Food + Drink Part Two

West Valley + SJ/South Valley + Fremont/Milpitas

If a modern King Solomon forced us to split Silicon Valley into natural divisions, one scheme would gather up the cities that tech giants like Google, HP, Apple, Nvidia and Intel call home—basically the 101 corridor between Palo Alto and Santa Clara, plus Cupertino to the west. Then there would be the places where many of the people who work in those places live: San Jose, Los Gatos, Saratoga, Milpitas, Morgan Hill.

In the past week, when we divided up the spreadsheet of regional Best of ballot winners for the Food & Drink categories, magically those were the two buckets that were filled. With the Best of Silicon Valley’s north and central winners already published, we now are pleased to present the regional winners for the rest of the valley. Next week is the big reveal, with the results of the valleywide Food & Drink balloting. Buen provecho, prost, chin chin! There’s a lot to enjoy.
