Monterey Dining

Stoke’s Adobe Restaurant and Bar
500 Hartnell St., Monterey CA
Set back in downtown Monterey in an old adobe building, built in a pre-California 1833, Stoke’s Adobe creates a clean and robust hybrid of California and Mediterranean cuisine, drawing from Catalonia, Tuscany and French Provence, using organic produce, wild mushrooms, and locally-caught seafood. The wood-fired pizzas, soups, fish and steak are worth hunting a bit in downtown Monterey for this hard-to-find but centrally-located Monterey restaurant.
