Consuelo Mexican Bistro
377 Santana Row #1125
San Jose (South Bay/Silicon Valley)
Description: Located in swanky Santana Row, Consuelo Mexican Bistro is a fantastic local San Jose bar that transports its patrons straight to a grand restaurant in Mexico with its simply stunning selection of tequilas and mescal, and some of the best cuisine we were able to find anywhere prepared fresh daily by phenomenal executive chef Alex Padilla. The d¨¦cor, of course, is chic Mexican with an emphasis on authenticity¡ªall of the glassware, plates and fixtures were shipped from Mexico¡ªthe service is swift and the patio is continually packed with shoppers and drinkers relaxing in the Santana Row atmosphere.

Good regional Mexican food made with lesser-known ingredients in an attractive, upscale atmosphere. The food is served tapas style and meant to be shared, an approach that serves the lively, often noisy restaurant well. Fantastic tequila list. Sunday brunch.
