Leaving tomorrow for 2 nights in Big Sur. Reservations @ Ripplewood--first time there! I have their breakfast/lunch menu--sounds fine! Is their breakfast better than Big Sur Inn? Obviously different atmosphere, but how's the food?
Dinner: gorgeous view & wine list @ Nepenthe, but what is there other than steak? Big Sur Inn?
Lunch: picnic OR terrace @ Ventana or try Post Ranch for more $$ but new experience? Or Nepenthe?
Please rally 'round, Hounds, with tips! This is a very special trip for us--we've been visiting Big Sur for 30 years. Help us have a sense of discovery food-wise? Great grocery items/local bakeries, etc--we want to have fun with just a little sense of discovery!
