All About West San Jose

Santana Row Dining

When walking along Santana Row, the epicenter of style in West San Jose, it’s easy to see why the area was ranked one of the top places in the U.S. to meet a mate. This upscale, Mediterranean retail and entertainment neighborhood is San Jose’s answer for haute couture fashion shopping, fine dining , and is where the young and the prestigious come to flaunt their brains and buying power – potent stuff if you’re hunting for an upwardly mobile partner in crime. From live music, farmers markets and designer brands like Gucci, Burberry and Brooks Brothers, to trendy wine bars, lounges and eateries, this is definitely the place in Silicon Valley to see and be scene.
Across the street is San Jose’s claim to worldwide fame, the Winchester Mystery House, the former home and gardens of the Winchester rifle heiress Sarah Winchester. Here you will find the oddest mansion in existence, complete with architectural oddities – such as stairways to nowhere and windows opening to walls – designed by Sarah to confuse the spirits of Winchester rifle victims. If mysteries are your muse, don’t miss this wonderfully wacky historic treasure, often featured on mystery and travel shows throughout the world.
If you’re more into the sort of mystery involving what’s in the next store, check out Westfield Valley Fair megamall just down the street, featuring 250 boutiques such as Louis Vuitton, Betsey Johnson, Stuart Weitzman, Tiffany & Co., BOSS Hugo Boss, Juicy Couture, and Apple.

Le Papillon
Le Papillon

In the spring of 1977, Le Papillon was established on a bustling street corner in what was to become Silicon Valley. Owner Mike Mashayekh was driven by a single goal - to create one of the finest restaurants in the Bay Area. The restaurant quickly flourished, building a loyal clientele with a taste for fine dining. With the technology boom of the late seventies, Le Papillon became the favorite restaurant for a new breed of executives from companies like Apple, Intel and Tandem. As the hi-tech industry evolved, so too did the restaurant.
