Nepenthe Restaurant Review: A drive down scenic Highway One should include a stop at Nepenthe for its views and American cuisine. While the soup and salad is the best value, the Ambrosia burger, ground steak and top-secret sauce highlighted by mayo and relish, never fails to delight. Dinner specials change nightly and warm specialty drinks such as the Nepenthe C & C (Chartreuse and Cognac) take the chill out of the fog. (Designate a driver, though --- the trip back to Carmel or Monterey can be daunting, even if you're sober in broad daylight.) End on a sweet note with the triple berry pie.
