Although there is still no indoor dining allowed in Monterey County at this time, we are offering two choices of outstanding New Year’s Day Dinner experiences for our community at an affordable cost so that families can relax and enjoy this very special day. Our recent Christmas and Thanksgiving To Go/Curbside Dinners were very popular and we are thankful for all of the compliments we received from the community about the quality and ease of these delicious carefully boxed holiday solutions. Our 70 years of experience in the restaurant business will ensure a delicious New Year’s Day Dinner for all!”
