Little Chef Counter – Bodaciously Delicious

I love Little Chef Counter. It’s wonderful.

Little Chef Counter is a micro-bistro in San Jose, which specializes in Californian-French cuisine. They place an emphasis on seasonal and fresh ingredients. As the name says, it’s little, really little. Only 5 seats at the counter, 6 for their dinner series events.

These events are held every 1-2 months. Diners pay a fixed price for a multi course dinner. It’s simply wonderful to sit at the counter that to the chefs as they prepare the feast. The food is bought at the San Jose Farmer’s Market on Friday so it is fresh.

These guys are creative, fun and the dinner is not to be missed. I went to my first one on May 26, 2013. Wow it was a feast, I couldn’t move afterwards. Ultra fun night. The photos are below. Enjoy the feast for your eyes. I know it was a feast for my eyes and stomach. Can’t wait to go to the next one on July 28, 2103. Salut!
