When you walk into Stanford Grill, you'll immediately notice its modern, yet rustic decor, and the abundance of natural light pouring through the bank of windows facing the garden out back. The menu is upscale new American cuisine, featuring dishes like pan-roasted cod with lemon butter and herbed veggies, or slow-roasted prime rib served with a horseradish sauce and mashed potatoes.
This place is also a popular happy hour destination, thanks to its location on the ground floor of an office building, and its many specials. Running from 3 to 7 p.m. each day, happy hour includes tasty snacks like spicy tempura shrimp and gourmet deviled eggs, as well as $3 draft beer and $6 wine and cocktails. If you'd rather visit over the weekend, consider stopping by for brunch to enjoy the kitchen's signature French toast stuffed with roasted pears and cream, and topped with fresh fruit, honey, and chantilly.
