Refined dishes inspired by culinary classics from New England to Louisiana fill the menu at Scott's Seafood. Sustainably fished salmon, raw oysters, and hearty chowder are prominent. However, this selection of upscale American cuisine also manages to incorporate entrees from the land, such as roasted chicken and Prime, dry-aged new york steaks. Servers confidently recommend pairings from the restaurant's international wine list, which highlights diverse California wines. Choose Your View From it's sixth-floor perch, Scott's Seafood overlooks the heart of San Jose and the nearby hills of Silicon Valley. These views are most impressive when viewed from the restaurant's patio, which is filled with stout wooden tables atop earthen tiles. During the colder months, outdoor heaters help keep the space comfortable, as do the flickering flamers of the massive stone fireplace. The indoor dining area features a more contained ambiance, but still embraces the same elegant, modern aesthetic as the patio. Aqua-blue paintings and verdant potted plants lend a vibrant splash of color amid the space's sleek use of neutral-toned walls, stark white tablecloths, and brushed metal railings.

Rosie McCann's specializes in twists on traditional Irish fare, tweaking classic Celtic dishes and drinks in a traditional pub setting. The menu showcases plates of irish nachos, sliced spuds slathered in jack and cheddar cheeses, olives, fresh salsa, guacamole, sour cream, and jalape?os. The Americanized version of shepherd's pie simmers grass-fed Humboldt beef and vegetables in a rich irish stock before adding a helmet of mashed potatoes au gratin. Heftier appetites can get satisfaction with bangers & mash, a Celtic take on the English classic, that douses irish sausages and garlic mashed potatoes in Guinness gravy. 10 premium imports or 4 microbrews stand ready on tap, and malt mixologists also pour specialty beer drinks such as the Black Velvet, a whistle-whetting blend of Blackthorn hard apple cider and Guinness. The dining room echoes the colors of the Irish flag, with burnt-red walls and bright-green stained-glass windows. Guests can cozy up in plush booth seats bedecked in plaid and gaze at glass chandeliers that hang from the ceilings as they sip on mimosas or savor lunch and brunch fare.

Originally standing on Éire's shores, O'Flaherty's Irish Pub was shipped in pieces to San Jose, where it was reconstructed to create an authentic atmosphere where guests can savor tasty Irish spirits while enjoying nightly events. Tucked into a booth in the cozy brick pub, patrons can drink traditional Irish libations that warm their insides without having to swallow a parka. The pub's 16 taps fill up mugs to foamy perfection as the hubbub of nightly karaoke, music, or trivia entertains guests lounging amid antique Irish prints and dark-wood shelves teeming with Celtic spirits. During warmer weather, the outdoor patio beckons patrons for open-air revelry beneath the gaze of stars and low-flying Dutchmen jealous of Ireland’s celebratory traditions.
