Places to Eat And Chill Out

By Stett Holbrook


FOOD IS the main reason to go out to eat, but a restaurant or market with powerful air conditioning is an added bonus. Here are five chilly suggestions for when the next heat wave strikes.

Bold Knight Bistro Hot fondue, cold AC. 840 N. First St, San Jose. 408.297.2170.

P.F. Chang's No MSG but lots of AC. Various locations including Oakridge Mall, 925 Blossom Hill Rd, San Jose. 408.960.2940.

Rokko Sushi Where cold fish is a good thing. 55 S. Market St, San Jose. 408.947.7778,

7-Eleven Hot dog + Slurpee + AC = A cool meal. Various locations including 248 S. 11th St., San Jose. 408.292.9105.

Zanotto's Metro music editor Todd Inoue says just walking the aisles lowers your core body temperature 20 degrees. The tri-tip sandwiches aren't bad either. 40 S. Second St, San Jose. 408.977.1333.
