I want to thank everyone for helping me choose a restaurant in Carmel. I did not post a question, but read through all the threads and decided to go to Flying Fish. Everyone in my party loved the restaurant and food.
Seared Ahi with Angel Hair pasta - awesommmme
Halibut with Black Bean paste in a paper wrap - delicious
NY Strip Steak - exquisite
Also, a thanks goes out to folks for recommending Yank Sing dim sum. I took my parents there and they loved it. It was pricey, but they had more veggie options and elbow room than Thon Kiang.
