We went to Emile's before a show in San Jose. First, we had heard great things about Emiles on the radio and read great online reviews, so we assumed it would be in the downtown area, but it was just a few blocks (not the nicest area) from it. But it was worth the sketchy walk. We had onion soup gratinee, we had wine, we had veal and duck. We didn't have a souffle, but only because the calorie police in my mind wouldn't let me! I definitely will on my return trip. It was wedding anniversary and it was a wonderful, romantic evening. The thing I loved was that I could order a taste, which was great for me to keep calories to a minimum or would be good to keep the bill low. They have a very nice wine list and they take reservations through opentable.com. They also do cooking classes which I would love to partake once my kids get older!
