Restaurant reco in Carmel or Monterey? [moved from SF Board]
We're spending the night in Monterey, which I've found to be a bit of a culinary wasteland. Any suggestions? We'd be willing to drive to Carmel if it was worth it.
If it weren't a nighttime thing, I tell you to drive down to the Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur. On a clear day, the view from the restaurant is tied for the single greatest view I have witnessed on earth (the other one is the view from the Roman Villa on the island of Capri). I've only had dessert/coffee there, but it's supposed to be a fantastic restaurant.
