25th Wedding Anniversary planning help needed
My husband and I are headed to Northern California(from SF to Big Sur) for a week. Long overdue trip and not alot of time to do research.
Any and all recommendations for fabulous restaurants, gourmet shops, bakeries, etc are needed. We are planning on 2 big splurges. I am thinking Post Ranch Inn for maybe one of them....any thoughts?
Our plan is maybe to have more nice lunches and to hit up Gourmet food shops for evening picnics(location suggestions for this would be great also.
Really appreciate any and all help possible to make a memorable trip.
Thnx wolfe....some one has recommended Rocky Point Restaurant, south of Carmel enroute to Big Sur....looks fabulous
These posts always seem to get you where you need to go so thank you for taking the time to contribute....keep the information flowing;)
Rocky Point Restaurant
Highway 1, Carmel, CA 93923
I should read more carefully...
Carmel evening picnic supplies: Nielsen Bros Market & Deli, Bruno's Market & Deli, Safeway (& it's not your mother's Safeway), The Cheese Shop.
Monterey: Whole Foods
Splurge: Post Ranch Inn for sure. However, I would go for lunch to enjoy the scenic drive. Also, should wine or cocktails be enjoyed at dinner, I would not advise that drive at night.
Highland Inn might also be a thought. Lovely view!!
Roy's if you like the menu, we do. Fun in the evening to sit around the firepits with cocktails.
Moderate, but fun:
Mission Ranch Inn. Clint's place that serves basic, good food. Has a piano bar frequented by visitors and locals alike. Beautiful pastoral views with in or outside dining. Brunch and dinner only, no res.
