For more than two decades, Evvia—with its charming tavern-style interior and warm service—has been a favorite for modern Greek cuisine. Word to the wise: Book a table well in advance. 420 Emerson St., Palo Alto

Ludwig's German Table
Housed in historic Germania Hall, this year-old eatery offers updated German fare, like a Leberk√§se sandwich with Dittmer’s veal loaf, cabbage slaw, mustard sauce and a buttered brioche bun. 261 N. Second St., San Jose

Indian flavors converge with California ingredients at this Michelin-starred spot, which features familiar dishes (such as butter chicken) as well as locally inspired takes (dosa filled with rainbow chard). 209 Park Road, Burlingame

Sumika Grill
To enjoy the yakitori (skewer) menu—with an array of delicious meat, seafood and veggie options—plan for dinner at this compact eatery. 236 Central Plaza, Los Altos

Find Middle Eastern staples of chicken shawarma and falafel, but also unusual offerings like mansaf (slow-cooked lamb in aged yogurt). The original Sunnyvale location has spawned three casual Dish n Dash variations in the South Bay. 190 S. Murphy Ave., Sunnyvale

This is intimate French bistro fare at its finest. The soupe du moment is always vegetarian and always worth trying, as is the ricotta gnocchi that never leaves the menu. The wine list is heavily French, with a nice variety of half bottles. 565 Bryant St., Palo Alto
