Restaurant 1833 Restaurant Review: Restaurant 1833 is housed in an historic Monterey building that was once the office of "Dr." James Stokes (who, according to legend, faked his MD credentials). Executive chef Jason Franey, formerly of Canlis in Seattle, oversees the kitchen that was previously run by Levi Mezick. His menu includes dishes such as buffalo style sweetbreads, guajillo crusted baby back pork ribs and salmon with saffron fumet, bouchot mussels, clams, baby artichokes and dill. The cocktail menu is playful and includes a flaming absinthe that's as much performance art as it is potent potable. Meanwhile, an international wine list offers eclectic selections for most budgets.
