At The Lodge at Pebble Beach

Caviar at Stillwater

  • 22-OUNCE RIB-EYE AT THE TAP ROOM: “Only 2 percent of all beef produced in the U.S. is certified USDA Prime, and The Tap Room pays top dollar. My go-to cut is that 22-ounce rib-eye”
  • DUCK FAT POTATOES (WITH TRUFFLE SALT AND BLACK PEPPER) AT THE BENCH: “Duck. Fat. Potatoes. End of story…Truffle salt and black pepper enhance those potatoes.”
  • CAVIAR AT STILLWATER BAR & GRILL: “Nothing screams ‘big shot’ like caviar, and Stillwater Bar & Grill specializes in those briny, Russian beauties.” (pictured above)
  • BACON-CHEDDAR BUTTERMILK PANCAKES AT GALLERY CAFE: Word is they make a mean Bloody Mary, which pairs well with bacon-cheddar buttermilk biscuits with chorizo gravy and poached eggs.”

At The Inn at Spanish Bay

Octopus at Roy's

  • TUSCAN T-BONE FOR TWO AT PEPPOLI: “From the dining room at Pèppoli you’ll see a veritable Wall of Flame, a custom-built, $150,000 oven-grill apparatus that burns almond and mesquite. Order the Bistecca alla Fiorentina” (top photo)
  • TATER TOTS AT STICKS: “Enjoy views of The Links at Spanish Bay and the Pacific, next to fire pits warming your fingers and toes. Order the tater tots (yes, tater tots).”
  • SPANISH OCTOPUS AT ROY’S AT PEBBLE BEACH: “The father of Hawaiian-fusion cuisine, Roy Yamaguchi, still puts his stamp on his Pebble Beach outlet.” (pictured above)
  • WINE AT SPANISH BAY BEACH: “At some point walking south along the sand at Asilomar Beach, the state park ends and private property begins, meaning dogs can run off leash and wine bottles can leave the backpack.”
  • WHISKEY WITH THE BAGPIPER AT THE FIRE PITS: It’s a nice way to end a day, warmed by ancient, soulful music with a dram of whiskey around the fire pits.”

And Make a Separate Trip For:

Pebble Beach Food & Wine

  • PEBBLE BEACH FOOD & WINE: “It’s one of the finest culinary events on the planet, and on April 20-23, it celebrates its 10-year anniversary. Look for organizers to pull out all the stops — and several thousand wine corks.”
