Believe it or not the Calamari at the Flamingo Hotel restaurant is killer. Just for some perspective - this is coming from someone who grew up in Monterey. Everything is perfect - crispiness, salt and peper level, no chew what-so-ever, sprinkling of italian parsley. *Really* nice.
Just make sure to ask for the remoulade on the side or else they make the bad decision to drizzle it all over.
