My husband and I are DC hounds visiting Southern California for the first time in mid-September. Would like chow recommendations for breakfast and dinner (we usually skip lunch). We will be staying 1 night in Santa Barbara (Marine Beach Hotel), 2 nights in Cambria (Blue Dolphin Inn), 1 night in Monterey (Monterey Bay Lodge), 4 nights in Yosemite (Yosemite Lodge at the Falls), 1 night in Courtyard Marriott LAX so ideally restaurants that are walking distance from those hotels. We are interested in American, French, Italian, continental, and seafood. Not as interested in ethnic as we already have great ethnic cuisine in the DC area. We don’t need to slum, but don’t need to go to Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant either. I’d say limit of $20 for a dinner entrée. Breakfast needs to include eggs as my husband disdains "continental breakfast". Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
