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.
