NEW Restaurant Opening!
Introducing Jacks Monterey – Opening April 26th
The new restaurant and lobby bar will welcome patrons for lunch and dinner in the redesigned atrium lobby. San Francisco-based Puccini Group designed the space with an eye for the inspirations and colors found across Northern California's Monterey Peninsula. Jacks Monterey’s design evokes the spectacular scenery that has made this area a world-famous vacation destination: Modern furnishings reflecting the weathered woods of the nearby docks and canneries, the crisp blue tones of the Pacific Ocean, and the pink and sage flora that dots the coastline.
Chef Danny Abbruzzese's “California Cultural Cuisine” reflects the melting pot of ethnicities that is exemplified in both California and America. The result is a wide-ranging, palate-pleasing menu of different flavor profiles unique to cultures from around the world, all created with sustainably conscious ingredients found throughout Monterey County.
Lunch - Serving lighter fares at lunch from 11:30 am to 4:00pm
The lunch menu is moderately priced and features salads, sandwiches, pizzas and more including a Strawberry Fields Forever salad created with locally grown strawberries, arugula, almonds, goat cheese fritter and aged balsamic.
Dinner - Sharing and solo plates at dinner from 4:00pm to 11:00pm
The dinner menu includes solo plates and sharing plates to allow patrons to sample a variety of menu items and engage in a shared dining experience with family, friends or colleagues. Such sharing plates include Abbruzzese’s Pajaro Pastures Goat Moussaka with herb béchamel sauce.
