Loft Bar and Bistro in downtown San Jose is the hip spot to indulge in great drinks and fresh fare. Dining is three tiers with an upstairs and downstairs dining area and then a rooftop patio that is always bustling seven nights a week until 10:00p.m. Monday through Wednesday and until 11:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday. The Loft has Italian hints on the carte du jour but falls more in line with contemporary American cuisine. Chicken Parmesan, Teriyaki Beef Short Ribs, and the Pork Picatta are meatier entrees. Fresh seafood peppers the appetizer section with fried Calamari, Smoked Salmon, Tuna Sashimi, and Grilled Scallop Skewers; Beef and chicken round out the smaller morsels to give patrons a solid variety. The Loft is open for lunch at 11:00a.m. Monday through Saturday and a lively Sunday brunch rounds out the week’s festivities at this downtown meeting point. With a stellar happy hour, three floors, a plethora of food, wine and cocktail choices, it’s high time you get to Loft Bar and Bistro.
