Just moved to Monterey, looking for good food hangouts

Hi there. Before kids, we lived on Portrero Hill in San Francisco and foodied our brains out. After kids, we grew our own herbs and food and had fun cooking, but moved on to less pretentious, more healthy, good food restaurants. For example, on the Peninsula, we love Kabul for its great Afghan food.

We have now moved to Monterey and are a bit intimidated by the whole "tourist culture" thing.

We're foodies, but we're kid-friendly, and although we love the kids, we're not spending $30 on their lunch entrees.

Can you please point us to some lower-cost, high-flavor really good restaurants in the area? And if some of them are higher-cost, well that's ok. But I'd love to know where we can just go for a simple, great meal.
