Restaurant Asa in Los Gatos

Last week a friend and I met to enjoy lunch at Restaurant Asa, which opened a few months ago. It was the first time there for both of us and we were anxious to give it a try since we’d only heard good things about it. The eatery’s location is super convenient and is a big plus: Asa sits just across from the Los Gatos Lodge, adjacent to the Best Western Inn of Los Gatos – at the corner of Alberto Way and Los Gatos-Saratoga Road. This is the same location where Grill 57 was until this summer. There’s no shortage of nearby parking, which cannot always be said of restaurants in town.

Inside, a waiting area features two comfy couches. A well appointed wine case is to the right and a full bar to the left.  The room is open, clean, quiet (while fairly full), and offers pleasant decor.

Dining Review of Trevese Restaurant in Los Gatos

Aleta Watson of The San Jose Mercury News did a very thorough review of Trevese’s dining experience and it was published yesterday. For those with a distinctive palate, this restaurant sounds like a must!
