If you have never had abalone, go to Nick's Next Door. It is so hard to find and so much work to try to prepare at home. Nick's is located a block away from the busy downtown and has a private parking lot, which is handy in Los Gatos. The restaurant is loud, so be prepared. We sat inside (a bit dark for reading the menu at our table), but maybe it is a bit more quiet in their outside seating. Two of us shared the Dungeness Crab Toast - very good, we each ordered the Abalone - it was great, and we also had cauliflower with pork belly as a side dish - very good. We skipped dessert as the above was plenty for us. They had a $25 corkage fee. Most men were dressed casually, with about 10% in sport coats. Service was great. The bread was great as well. I don't give out many 5 star ratings, but this one is deserved.
