Nick’s on Main, Los Gatos, CA
I am jealous of people who work near Los Gatos downtown. There are just no shortage of excellent lunch options. Thirteen dollars for a Dungeness Crab Melt or Lobster Roll is really money well spent. These sandwiches are more refined than those from traditional seafood spots but twice as delicious and just as gratifying.
The portions are generous. Careful not to get filled up by their tasty bread and dip. Even just a simple Dungeness Crab Risotto “starter” could be a full lunch for some. If you like risotto that is something not to be missed. The texture is just right with a perfect amount of firmness.
Lovely ambiance. Small, cozy but intimate.
The down side? Nick’s is a tiny restaurant and is super popular. Your chance of getting a table without reservation during regular work day lunch hour is slim, very slim. Do plan ahead and make a reservation.
