Two Nights in Carmel: Bouchée & Cantinetta Luca?
My wife and I will be traveling to Carmel for three nights at the end of the month, staying at the Highlands Inn. We'll be dining one night at Pacific's Edge; these other two restaurants sound nice as well. Is there anything else we should be considering instead?
I just had a sterling meal at Stokes in Monterey. I know that they have had a checkered reputation, but all I can say is that Brandon and Kirk still are quite a team.
I had many of their small plates and found all of them excellent. I have no idea how I passed on the duck confit as it is one of my favorites, but I did. One of these days I will ignore the apps and just order the pork shoulder or the hanger steak or .... as I have done before.
The place rocks.
