You can sit either indoors (indoor seating is a little limited) or they have a nice patio in the back. Sip wine, eat snacks or all the above.
Downtown Los Gatos is only a few blocks long so there are many eating places within a block. Across the street is The Palms Restaurant (the cool old building that used to be Place Mortuary). About a block up and across the street is the new (2019) North restaurant (Vietnamese, cocktails and small plates, meals too), then Kamakura for sushi and other Japanese fare. After that it's just a few more steps to Coup de Thai (yes, Thai food!). That's just to name a few.
We did a drive-by of ASA Los Gatos this morning, September 30, 2019. We see progress! There is no sign on the building yet, but there is a sign posted next to the Best Western sign along Alberto Way.
There were chefs in the kitchen working away and a delivery truck in the drive dropping off boxes, all of which indicating progress is being made. Check out more details here.
