Best Neighborhood Cookout

Tuesday Night Steak Night at the Hotel San Jose

Perhaps the grooviest of all the retro-chic events happening here at this hot spot on the so cool SoCo strip is its weekly Steak Night. Chef Louis Lambert fires up the grill and has his great Liberty Catering staff serve steaks to the laid-back neighborhood crowd lounging around the comfortable San Jose courtyard. A soft breeze carries the aroma of steaks on the grill, folks chat amiably over ice-cold beer, and some kid does a cannonball in the swimming pool. It's a Fifties neighborhood block party every Tuesday night.
