Rio Grill, Carmel, CA

Rio Grill Restaurant Review

: Rio Grill offers artfully bold Southwestern cuisine like empanadas with smoked tri-tip on an avocado and lime "crema" accented by spicy chile oil. The "RG Chop Chop" with corn, black-eyed peas and cotija cheese is fresh and flavorful; we also like the Chinese chicken salad. Vegetarians have limited but inventive options, including a poblano pepper stuffed with quinoa, corn, vegetables and cotija cheese. Save room for olallieberry pie.
