John Steinbeck had much to say about Cannery Row, and we have more to add for modern times from when YDT hit the sleepy coastal town of Monterey to see what all the fuss was about. Homebase of the Monterey Bay Aquarium (the peeps behind Seafood Watch) and situated next to rolling hills, organic farms and vineyards, we filled our hearts' desire with pristine California Coastlines and guilt-free, delicious, sustainable seafood, wine, cookies and the list goes on and on.

Eat: Jack’s Restaurant and Lounge

Some say a hotel is only as good as its restaurant. Fortunately for the Portola, Jack’s Restaurant gives it a great reputation. Whether you’re interested in beer battered fish and chips or freshly caught halibut, the menu has something for you. The restaurant takes full advantage of abundant local organic produce and the bay’s sustainable seafood. Locavores will certainly go gaga for this cuisine. Try the corn chowder if you have a chance too…delicious! From service to place setting, this one hits every single mark.
