I'll be staying in Monterey over the weekend and will be having dinner on my own. I love great food and drinks, and am looking for a great experience dining at the bar. Any recommendations for a place with a nice bar where they welcome dinner orders ?
For reference, the last time up there solo, I had a great time drinking and ordering dinner at the bar at Montrio - the head bartender at the time (believe his name was Anthony) was knocking it out of the park with some delicious, innovative cocktails, and I thought the food was great.
I'd appreciate any alternative suggestions. Does anyone know if Anthony is still presiding at Montrio?
