Dinner in Monterey?
Any recommendations for dinner spots in monterey? Nothing too fancy. Just a solid meal, preferably a little away from all the tourist traps.
Kind of a wide open question. Can you give us an idea of seafood, Mexican, steak, French, Thai, Italian. If you narrow it down a bit, we can help you. Do you want to stay in Monterey or would Pacific Grove or Carmel be OK?
Passionfish (in nearby Pacific Grove) is a board favorite. Reasonable prices, great wine list (wines priced at retail), and focus on sustainable seafood. Monterey Fish House is more conventional, but solid.
Like Gail said, if you have more specific needs/wants, we can make more specific replies.
