Bonito Roadhouse in Big Sur; California Cuisine?

Steve | Jan 15, 2004 01:56 PM

I'm surprised to find no mention on this board of Bonito Roadhouse in Big Sur. I had a rollicking good meal there a couple years back, which included a pea soup of a type that I can't get back here on the East Coast. Also a delicious plate of ravioli in a balsamic/maple syrup that normally I would have found too sweet, but they mangaed to hit it right anyway.
Which brings me to the questions: what kind of peas are there in California that I'm not likely to find in the East, and what is California Cuisine, anyway? When I think of it, I think of Bonito Roadhouse, though I'm not clear about why....
