Restaurants Best Viewing Spot

Spectators can enjoy action on the eighth, ninth and par-5 14th from the grandstand to the left of the eighth green. Nicklaus once called the approach to No. 8 the “best second shot in golf.” Fans can’t line the fairway on eight anymore (pictured) but the grandstand provides the best spot to see the players tested and gaze at the ocean and Carmel Beach.

Sweet Tooth

Pebble Beach Resort’s Tap Room is famous for its burgers and location near the closing hole. Try the Tap Room Sundae which will easily serve four. The

decadent treat includes two chocolate chip cookies, six scoops of housemade vanilla ice cream, two maple- buttered bananas, housemade fudge, fresh whipped cream and honeyed slivered almonds with cinna- mon crisps on top. The dessert is served in an oversized martini glass.

Come prepared with jackets and sweaters for cooler weather and fog. The 2000 Open endured a fog delay and June temperatures traditionally fall into the 50s. Wear layers because the microclimates may mean sun at the hotel and fog at the course.

MONTEREY FISH HOUSE

The casual seafood restaurant serves a variety of fresh fi sh prepared however the diner wants. Homemade pastas are also a hit. The af- fordable prices keep the eatery packed daily. Call in advance for reservations.

SUSHI HEAVEN

Arguably the best sushi on the Monterey Peninsula is served in a no-frills setting on Dolores Street in downtown Carmel. The restau- rant only has 10 tables and seats at the sushi bar go fast because of

the fresh fi sh and more than 100 sushi combinations.

THE CHICKEN HOUSE

If you need to eat quickly, The Little Chicken House on Forest Ave. in Pacifi c Grove is just a few blocks outside the Country Club Gate. Don’t be scared away by the rustic exterior; the ribs and pulled pork are worth a try.

KATY’S PLACE

The Carmel staple is open for breakfast every day from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m and serves 16 different kinds of eggs Benedict including local varieties such as Lobster Benedict. The cash-only spot is located on Mis- sion Street and

has many famous regulars. Rumor has it Jim Nantz drives from Oakland just for breakfast where he orders the eponymous Augusta Green Omelette (pictured).

CALIFORNIA MARKET

If you fi nd yourself with some time before golf starts make the drive just south of Carmel to the Highlands Inn for breakfast. The deck at California Market overlooks Yankee Point and down to Big Sur. The view will make you not care about what you are eating, but the breakfast options are still outstanding.
