My husband and I will be in Big Sur for one night in July as part of a San Francisco to Ojai road trip. We are staying at Ventana. Our friends who have visited the area recommend the restaurants at Ventana or Post Ranch. Both are very ambitious, pre-fixe menus which is not really our scene and many of the reviews I've read are mixed. I think we'll be happier grabbing a drink at Post Ranch and then dining elsewhere. But dining options seem to be quite limited in the area, so I was curious if anyone had any other recommendations... Right now I'm considering Deetjen's but wondering if there's anything else I've missed.
