San Jose Restaurants: Sama Zama is Coming!

San Pedro Square Market is about to add another great restraurant. We’ve told you a little bit about Shawn Mckenna’s fresh and innovative concept, but now we are happy to say that Sama- Zama will be joining us at the Market! The lunch service will focus on healthy salads, soups and sandwiches on fresh-baked bread. Soups are his specialty, so you know those will be delicious! The best part is that the basic stocks will be made ahead of time, but all of the vegetables and proteins will be cooked to order. Isn’t that how it should be? And here it will be! For dinner, Shawn will utilize the techinques he has honed in 12+ years of cooking professionally to produce an ever-changing array of tapas-style small plates. Take a look at this video Shawn has put together to give you a better idea of what he has in store for us.

Sama-Zama will begin construction shortly. It will be located in the El Dorado Building across from Pizza Bocca Lupo.

Last-minute Valentines Day Ideas

Lets step out of the box for a minute. Let’s not do the normal candy, roses, balloons thing. Lets get creative, personal and most importantly as easy as we can this year! The best ideas and gifts are the ones you make yourself and sometime tend to even be the cheapest ones to give!


10 Simple and Great Ideas:


1. An incredibly nice and thoughtful gesture is to write a letter or a poem. You don’t have to be a poet either! Just write down how you feel about the person, how important they are to you. I bet this is way better than a box a chocolates (or at least a close second).

2. Along the lines of a letter is filling a jar with little love notes.

3. Suggest cooking a meal together! Could be a favorite food for both or a new one you can explore together. 

4.Walk around a favorite part of town, stopping at a nice local bar for a glass of wine and appetizers. (Perhaps Vino Vino!)

5. Plan a scavenger hunt sending your valentine all around town while you get dinner ready! This might take some time, but your valentine will appreciate the time you put into this idea.

6. Buy them 1 of their favorite flower. Doesn’t need to be an entire bouquet, the important part is to remember which is their favorite.

7. Make a mixed CD of your favorite songs that remind you of that person. Include why you picked those tracks.

8. Pack a lunch and go to the park for a picnic! Lets take it back to our childhood and go swing on the swings.

9. Let the person know you are thinking about them, send email, text, voicemails, and even a letter in the snail mail! Your valentine will know how much you are thinking about them and care.

10. Take your Valentine to San Pedro Square Market! Enjoy good music, food, drinks, and simply enjoy the company of one another.


Here is a rundown of the special offers the Market Tenants will be offering tomorrow night:

Vino Vino is offering 25% off wine pours for ladies
Pizza Bocca Lupo is offering 15% off all desserts
Little Chef Counter is offering a 3-course prix fixe: House Salad, Pan-roasted Salmon, and White Chocolate Bread Pudding for $24/person from 5pm-close.




Bad Ideas: Don’t forget! As much as your valentine might say they really don’t care what you do if anything at all, which might be true, still take the time to let that person verbally know how important you are to them. Valentines day or not, this is not a bad idea. Also, don’t do something that you know your valentine doesn’t care for. Try to be considerate even with the minor details. There might be a Sharks game on that night, or a new Glee on, but lets try to think of the other person for a change guys!

Vino Vino now open in the San Pedro Square Market

san jose wine bar, wine bars in san joseVino Vino wine bar is officially open for business in the San Pedro Square Market. Owners Victor Klee and Gary Arakaki were one of the first tenants involved in the project. The wine bar is located on the North end of San Pedro Street and boasts an amazing 13 bottle wines tap system. Yes that's correct they have wine on tap. The tap system is amazing to look at but it is also a green product. The tap system cuts back on corks, bottles, labels, foil, boxes, the list goes on and on. Another great feature of the system is the ability to carry more unique wines that cannot be found at many other wines bars because the system increases the life of the wine without sacrificing on the quality. So for all you wine buffs out there that means more wine flights more often.

There menu is great too. I went there for lunch today and ordered the smoked salmon crostini plate and a brie, prosciutto, & fig spread sandwich, all i can say is WOW! If that's not your style, I saw other people eating the grilled cheese sandwich that has crimini mushrooms and truffles, and a seared ahi tuna salad. As i was eating my lunch I asked Gary and Victor what made them decide to open the wine bar and they simply said..."We couldn't find anything that catered to us, so we went out and started our own bar". I must say its been a hit so far. People are raving about it. In fact its more than just a wine bar, its an experience. I went to lunch not knowing much about wine, other than I like it. But when I left I knew why they decided on the wine taps vs traditional bottles, where the wines are coming from, and they their food products are local and sustainable which is important to me and I'm sure many others.

Crewners  will be an old-school barbershop with all of the current amenities. The barber shop is the brainchild of Dan Dixon. Dan is a skilled technician who's also blessed with the gift of gab. Here is a little about Crewners:





Crewners will be an upscale barbershop, providing fashionable and stylish haircuts and the highest quality full barbershop services. Vintage decor blended with modern equipment will create an atmosphere that is warm, welcoming and invites customers to relax, refresh and reminisce. The chair you see below was found on craiglsist.
