A taste of Los Gatos, California

Head to the South Bay foothills for bocce, biking, and a splurge dinner

The culinarily curious don't think twice about braving the traffic along State 17 to get to Los Gatos, thanks in large part to Manresa, a restaurant that foodies are flocking to.

But there are plenty of reasons besides David Kinch's celebrated tasting menu to visit the 19th-century town. Begin your day with brunch at a local breakfast spot, play in the park and in town, then head to Manresa to find out what the hype is all about.
