Four dinners in Carmel/Monterey area

josephnl | Apr 19, 2012 03:23 PM

We've not been to the Carmel/Monterey area for about a year, and are wondering if there's anything new or great that we shouldn't miss during an upcoming visit. We very much miss Citronelle which closed after a short stint in Carmel Valley...and Fresh Cream when it was in Monterey. On our last visit, we didn't have any great dinners, although Fandango in Pacific Grove and Grasing's in Carmel were pretty good. Cantinetta Luca was good...but for lunch. Where would you go for 4 terrific dinners in the area? Sierra Mar at the Post Ranch Inn has been great in the past, although it's a bit far, especially if you have dinner with drinks and a bottle of wine. Help will be appreciated!
