Just moved to the area and curious to find out the best bars/restaurants to meet local people to learn more about the area?
Mentioned in this answer:
There is a perfect place I like the most. Especially to have a brunch.
It's called KitchenTown and it's right next to 101 freeway. I'm 100% sure you'll meet locals.
BTW, it's very clean, spacious and very tasty.
Hope you like it, it was favorite place during our stay in San Mateo.
