Perfect For:LunchDate Night

Bring a date to this casually chic French-Italian bistro to impress without looking like you’re trying. Scribbled-on chalkboards and hanging copper pots give the place a rustic countryside bistro feel, but the delicate plating and attentive service makes it clear you’re in Carmel. Start with a couple of hors d’oeuvres, like the spinach gnocchi and the Provençal mushrooms with Pernod and hazelnuts, and then split one of the fig, arugula, and prosciutto wood-fired pizzas. It’s ideal for a romantic yet unpretentious lunch before heading to the beach or strolling through town.

Seventh & Dolores

Seventh & Dolores is as perfect for a steak as it is for a pre-dinner cocktail at the bar.
