My daughters and I will be driving from Monterey or Big Sur to Yosemite on a Thursday in August, as part of a road trip down the coast, Yosemite, and ending in San Francisco. I would love to find an interesting place to stop for lunch along the way.
My guess is that we will be looking for a place closer to the coast than central CA or near Yosemite, based on our schedule. I was looking at the Big Artichoke restaurant in Castroville - it sounds kind of fun and funky, maybe a little bit kitschy, which might be just what we are looking for (and we love artichokes).
This is not an urgent issue, but I would welcome any suggestions for an interesting place to stop. I think we will be taking the 156-152-140 route.
Thanks very much!
