  • Linwood's Bar & Grill
    Monterey Bay unfurls like a watercolor painting beneath the mountaintop grounds of Chaminade Resort & Spa. Bold white splashes adorn the blue water, and brushstrokes of green kelp tangle with the dark rocks. Nestled in the resort, Linwood's Bar & Grill offers sweeping views of it all from an outdoor patio with fire-pit tables and comfy seating around an indoor fireplace. In the kitchen, Chef Kirsten Ponza and her team prepare cuisine with ingredients native to California's central coast. Careful thought also goes into the drink selection at Linwood's Bar & Grill. Bartenders pour organic and sustainably produced wines, many of which are from the area, unlike the mysterious baron sitting with a map and harpoon at the end of the bar. They also mix signature drinks, drawing on a tropical palette that includes mango vodkas, pomegranate juice, and fresh herbs.

  • Laili Restaurant
    Laili: A User's Guide Modern Afghan Cuisine | Farm-to-Table Recipes | Communal Dining Space | Open Kitchen | Idyllic Courtyard Sample Menu Starter: maush-awa, a three-bean soup with lentils, split peas, and qurut yogurt that Ann Parker of the Santa Cruz Sentinel called "one of the most delicious soups I've ever tasted" Entree: lamb kebab with kabuli rice, mixed vegetables, and three chutneys Vegetarian entree: pomegranate eggplant with saffron-infused basmati rice, chard, caramelized onion, and yogurt Dessert: cardamom crème brûlée The Focus: Wafi Amin came to the United States in 1975 to study and learn about the world, but while he was here, the Soviet Union invaded his native Afghanistan. So Amin decided to stay. Years later he opened Laili as both an homage to his homeland's culture and as an exploration of the flavors of the Silk Road—a 5,000-mile trade route between the Mediterranean and China. Where to Sit: If the weather is accommodating, head outside. Laili is home to a courtyard so secluded that it can only be seen while riding in a helicopter or on Godzilla's shoulder. Amid its white tablecloths, ivy climbs toward light-draped beams, and palm fronds share space with flickering heaters. On rainy days, plant yourself indoors at one of the communal dining tables, where you can brush elbows with a cross-section of downtown. While You're Waiting Turn your eyes toward the open kitchen to watch the chef roll out naan dough with a giant rolling pin. Appraise the precious Afghan jewelry that's the subject of a 16-panel photograph in the dining room. While You're in the Neighborhood Before: Read up on the Silk Road at Bookshop Santa Cruz, an independent staple since 1966 (1520 Pacific Avenue). After: Settle in for a nightcap at 99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall (110 Walnut Avenue), which has amassed an impressive collection of craft brews and strong Belgian ales.
