Best Restaurants between Monterey and Santa Barbara

Jeremy | May 18, 2006 07:44 PM

I'm going on a road trip in July. What are the best restaurants down south, maybe in Monterrey, Santa Cruz, Carmel, Santa Barbara, Big Sur, etc.?

Perhaps a mix of haute cuisine and "road food"-type local specialties, off-the-beaten-track type places.....

who are the good chefs cooking down there?

I've heard Siera Mar is good. Any truth to this?

What about Anton and Michel?
