We (my husband and I with 2.5 y.o. way too energeric toddler) will be travelling from San Francisco to Los Angeles around New Year holiday. We are going to start from San Francisco in the morning of Dec 31, have a tour to the Hearst Castle and then go to Pismo Beach to have a New Year Eve dinner and spend a night .
We read about Jocko's in Nipomo which seems to be a nice place but we hope to find a place with something more than just a steak and fries. Something simple but with interesting twist. Something like PassionFish in Pacific Grove but maybe a bit less quiet and more casual so they would tolerate our kid.
Another way would be to order take-away and have a dinner in our hotel room - less interesting but safer in case the kid will be tired and fussy. But again, we hoped for a "real" dinner, not a pizza or Chinese in carton boxes. It's a New Year eve and we have a couple of bottles of champaign with us!
Any ideas would help!
Thanks a lot in advance.
