I'm trying to decide on dinner for a visit to Monterey. My wife and I will be driving up from LA and staying 2 nights at the Intercontinental Clement near Cannery Row. One night is scheduled for Cantinetta Luca in Carmel, currently our favorite restaurant in the area.
Our first night is open and Stokes in Monterey, Taste Cafe and Bistro in Pacific Grove, and the restaurant at the Mission Ranch Inn are kind of popping out of my dining list. Any thoughts on these places as well as your favorite dishes that would help us decide would be greatly appreciated. I suppose if we're too tired we could always go over to the Sandbar and Grill for a casual seafood meal. Thanks in advance for your help.
