Carmel/Monterey Advice

Debbie | Mar 5, 2008 08:32 AM

We are coming to the area in March and will have a car. We have dined at Pacific Edge, Cassanova, and Marinus and enjoyed those three. This time, we are coming with some younger diners (in their 20's). We are looking for good food (of course!)---italian, american, french, would all be fine-- and are hoping to find some choices that offer an upscale atmosphere. Either nice and comfortable or hip and contemporary----just not overly casual or extremely formal. A view like Pacific Edge has is nice too but not necessary. We are considering Bouchee, Da Giovanni, Marinus (again), Portabello, Fresh Cream, White House. Hotel concierge has suggested these...Any advice from the board will be greatly appreciated!
