A common haunt for politicos, Jürgen's attracts San José's elites. Decorated in gold and terra-cotta with leather-and-wood accents, the contemporary dining room feels more like a lounge than a fine restaurant. In fact, the classy bar, with a large selection of fine wines and good cigars, is a prominent feature. The inventive menu, with such delicacies as medallions of roast duck and tuna fillet encrusted with sesame seeds, sets this place apart from the city's more traditional venues.
