Chez Tj

938 Villa St. Mountain View, CA 94041
Cuisine : Contemporary

The inspector's view

The modern Google office building next door may symbolize the current trajectory of Mountain View, but Chez TJ, housed in a quaint, historic bungalow, remains delightfully analog. Its warren of narrow rooms, each boasting its own style, is brought together by hand-blown colored glass lamps and professional servers in sharp black suits. A favorite for celebratory couples on date-night or suits gathering for business, it offers some of the area's finest food. The nightly chef's tasting menu dances ably through numerous styles and cuisines, from a Spanish-inspired dish of jamón ibérico and beef tendon chips over romesco sauce, to a fluffy blini topped with duck confit and quenelle of Sauternes-infused duck liver mousse. Moist and flaky halibut cheeks are served over streaks of onion soubise, pickled mushrooms and shallots, and sweet English peas, then topped with a rich oxtail ragout. A palate-cleansing glass of house-made hibiscus-rose soda is a gateway to the excellent desserts. Try a slice of the moist banana sponge cake with banana-chrysanthemum mousse and intense strawberry sorbet; or the Valrhona chocolate mousse with grapes, pistachio paste, and gold-dusted chocolate pearls.
