There’s an intriguing blend of elegance and comfort at Uncle Yu’s. The welcome is warm, and the service and wine list are notches above any competitor. Several excellent “gourmet dinners” are available for the large group that doesn’t want to fret over ordering. The kitchen here works wonders with seafood—lobster, calamari, prawns, scallops, whole fish—and don’t miss the wok-cooked vegetables in season. A whopping 400 choices on the wine list reflect the interest of general manager Nicholas Liang in matching the flavors of the East with the wines of the West. Lunch and dinner daily. Also in San Ramon.
