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). The food is sophisticated fun, while the cocktail menu is playful and includes house-made spirits as well as 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. For dessert, order Dr. Stokes' mignardise, a collection of small sweet bites such as passion fruit jellies, served out of a doctor's bag, illuminated by LED lights and accented by cinnamon-infused smoke. Service is professional.
