Last weekend, parents of One Direction fans waited patiently in their cars while children all over the Bay Area sung and danced to the tunes of the popular boy band, One Direction. Even without fan favorite, Zayn Malik, the concert at Levi Stadium was a popular hit for tweens, young adults, and seasoned adults. Many parents who drove their children to the much anticipated concert chose to wait in their cars for the concert to end, rather than attend the concert or commute back and forth.
Birk’s Restaurant in Santa Clara wants to invite all of the parents and future concert goers to their family-friendly restaurant before, during, or after the concert. Age has no preference at Birk’s, whose lunch and dinner menus offer tantalizing temptations for parents and children. Known for their grass fed beef and their mouth-watering pork chops, Birk’s offers a complete menu and full bar with something for everyone.
Servers at Birk’s are often asked for particular recommendations and some popular appetizers might be the Fried Calamari Romano and Parmesano, Shellfish sampler, a cold sampler with oysters and lobsters for sharing, Grilled Artichoke with three sauce, or the Appetizer Sampler featuring calamari, steak bits & onion rings. Lovers of all-things seafood might enjoy the popular Oysters on the Half Shell, Clam Chowder, or Seared Ahi Sashimi. Birks is proud of our deep cut tumbler oysters, a high end premium oyster with a different oyster featured daily. Kale is the new green, and with Birk’s delicious Kale Salad and Kale flatbread, customers have creative choices to get their greens in. Culinary fanatics also find Mary’s Chicken, our Spiced Rub Pork Loin, and our Vegetable Terrine equally delicious, which is why they make up our House Specialties. Birk’s lunch menu offers juicy Wood Grilled Burgers, Pastrami Paninis, and Chepe’s Open Face sandwich.
With so many delicious meals to choose from, sitting in a car during a concert pales in comparison. Drivers who have already had dinner may want to join us at our full bar to enjoy one of our specialty cocktails such as our popular Gin Gin Mule, Orchard White Sangria, or Cherry Berry Fizz. For wine connoisseurs, enjoy wines from our local Santa Cruz Mountains. We will be happy to pour you a glass of our Fess Parker, Chardonnay, Martella Sauvignon Blanc, or La Crema Pinot Gris.
Beer enthusiasts appreciate the vast selection of beers we have on tap or in the bottle. Have a favorite? We probably have it or at least can lead you to something similar. Want to try something new? We may direct you to our Speakeasy, Prohibition Amber Ale, just as much fun to drink as it is to say; Dogfish Head, 90 Minute IPA, a name worth pondering while you enjoy its refreshing quality; or our 21 Amendment, Watermelon Wheat, where summer fruit combines with alcohol for a popular choice.
Want to keep it alcohol free? Try our delicious Watermelon Basil Lemonade, Kiwi Coconut Limeade, or our Full Espresso Bar so you can stay awake while waiting for the concert goers.
With concerts coming up from Taylor Swift on Friday, August 14 and Saturday, August 15, it’s not too early to book your reservations at Birk’s Restaurant in Santa Clara. Enjoy a leisurely dinner while your children are having the time of their life at the concert. Contact us for a table or just pop in. We can’t wait to see you!
