MICHELIN Guide

Nestled into a charming 19th century Victorian in the heart of downtown Mountain View, Chez TJ likes to kick it old-school. After 35 years on the fine-dining scene, they know exactly what works: antique pictures and Venetian blown glass table lamps give the space a romantic feel, and the waitstaff is still formally suited. This venerable restaurant has launched the career of many a culinary legend—the latest being the chef, Jarad Gallagher. He currently offers two menus: a ten-course seasonal option meant to highlight ingredients sourced from within 100 miles of the restaurant; and an extended chef’s tasting menu (14+ courses) which explores international territory as well. Dinner might begin with a delicately fried yuba skin beggar's purse, stuffed with plump Kumamoto oysters bobbing in spicy kimchi juice and served atop a porcelain soup spoon. Later, a delicate French onion soup, crowned with a Gruyère crostini and paired with homemade sourdough levain, makes its way to your table. Sashimi courses typically precede richer items, including a duo of veal, served beneath paper-thin shingles of turnip and slipped into a small crispy croquette set over sautéed Bloomsdale spinach. - MICHELIN guide inspectors
