MICHELIN Guide

Anyone on the hunt for a happening scene in Palo Alto should follow the scent to Bird Dog, where the décor is sleek, the cocktails flow freely, and the diners sport head-to-toe designer duds. Boisterous and social, this is the kind of place where air kisses fly easily from the lips of Silicon Valley types who've scored must-have reservations. If you're hoping for a quiet meal, this is not your spot. The food is as ambitious as the yuppie crowd, and while it may misstep here and there, it gets points for a modern approach. Delicious options include an exquisitely conceived tai crudo with chopped pecans and aji amarillo; green curry-breaded chicken thighs served over uni mousse; and finally, a chocolate crémeux enriched by ginger and white ale ice cream.
