Although everyone knows that pizza fresh from a restaurant's kitchen is far superior to its grocery-store cousins, sometimes families don't have time to eat out. That's why Marina's Take 'N' Bake Pizza offers its pies not only to go, but uncooked, so they can be baked and eaten whenever a meal is needed. Staff members quickly assemble pizzas from the customizable menu, layering crusts with either red, herb, or creamy garlic sauce topped with a choice of ingredients, such as pineapple, jalapeños, bacon, and salami. The menu also includes a few fan favorites, such as the meat-stuffed pizza and the creamy garlic and bacon. Marina's doesn't stop at providing pizza, though. It also serves up salads and cookie dough to make an entire meal, ready after only a few minutes in the oven.
Within the pampering confines of Diva's Beauty Studio, aesthetician Monica Hernandez makes it her mission to help clients feel their best. Her skincare treatments include intensive PCA Skin chemical peels, which exfoliate dead skin to liberate the glowing dewiness beneath. Her pumice-assisted microdermabrasion offers a gentler take on exfoliation, and her de-stress facial aims to gently replenish guests' energy and lift their moods. Other facials include the classic facial, the vitamin C facial, and the back facial, which clears dorsal pores and keeps wings clean. Monica also waxes, keeping faces and bodies free of unwanted hair.
Daddy's City Diner served patrons three square meals a day. Ham, peppers, and cheddar cheese are tucked inside omelets, and walnuts are sprinkled on top of belgian waffles during breakfast hours. Later in the day, chefs build a number of handhelds, including burgers topped with bacon strips and hot dogs smothered in chili and melted cheese.
When the Monterey County Herald's Sam Laage stopped by Dishes Bistro & Grill in September 2013, he said in a review that places such as Dishes prove that if you cook good food, have good service, and offer a comfortable atmosphere, people will come to you no matter where you are. Laage was perhaps most impressed by the Italian-style food at Dishes. He said the roasted medallions of pork tenderloin were "fork-tender but satisfyingly chewy" and called the oniony marmalade "inspired." One member of Laage's party was vegetarian and opted for one of the restaurant's vegetarian dishes, the ravioli al pesto, which Laage sampled and declared to have an "expertly balanced sauce."
Laage loved his food and the experience so much that he came back for a second visit. This time, he got to try the fresh blackened halibut and said "my mouth came alive with one taste." His final conclusion? "Do yourself a favor, check them out. GO!"
