Recommendations in Monterey/Carmel
Going in January to Monterey/Carmel for one night. I'm looking for Chowhound recommendations for:
* lunch near the Monterey Bay Acquarium
* dinner in downtown Carmel
Any type of cuisine or style is fine. Just looking for delicious food in a lively, fun (no coat or tie) atmosphere.
Thanks for your help.
For lunch near the aquarium, try Bistro Moulin. It is one block above the aquarium, has a great little menu, friendly servers and chowhound worthy food prepared by the chef/owner Didier, who used to be the chef at Casanova's in Carmel for over 20 years.
For dinner in Carmel...hmm...daGiovannis is very reliable Meditteranean fare, the Carmel Chop House for carnivores, Grasing's or Flaherty's for seafood.
