It’s still a tough climate to open a new restaurant in San Jose, but that didn’t stop a handful of notable newcomers from opening their doors.

Green Bites Cafe
San Jose has few restaurants that cater to vegetarians and vegans so the opening of Green Bites Cafe was big news for meat eschewers. 

The Hay Market
The Hay Market opened in Willow Glen this fall and has been packing them in ever since.


Hoi An Bistro
A late entry, Hoi An Bistro opened in the space formerly occupied by Onyx, another mid-tier Vietnamese restaurant. Will they fare better?

Myth Taverna and Lounge
Myth takes Greek food upscale with this sleek lounge/restaurant combo.

Pizza Bocca Lupo
San Pedro Square Market will house several new eateries when it’s fully up to speed, but Pizza Bocca Lupo was one of the first to get rolling.
