New Eateries

Two with sidewalk cages that were bakeries long ago. One was the Fighting Favaloros which closed again for reasons unknown. Perhaps more of the family time they talk about. Other was Mauricios. Last one is the first ‘pub’ allowed in P.G. Grab a fork and go.

Among three new restaurant establishments opening on downtown’s main thoroughfare in mid-April is The Monarch Pub & Restaurant, the first pub ever in the state’s last dry town. The new establishment, which will be located at 617 Lighthouse Ave. where the 17th Street Grille used to reside, will join fine dining restaurants Wild Fish and Poppy Hall. The former, which will feature locally-caught fish and seafood and farm-to-table cuisine will be located at 545 Lighthouse Ave., the old location of Favaloro’s Big Night Bistro while the latter will take the spot where longtime eatery Mauricio’s was at 589 Lighthouse Ave.

Price spotting – Monarch pub looks best if one is real hungry.

  • $10 for some mixed veggies at Poppy Hall
  • $9.95 for a turkey burger at Monarch
  • $32 for Bouillabaisse at Wild Fish

Mauricio’s Gets Evicted

No reason given.

After 14 years at the same location on Lighthouse Avenue, longtime Pacific Grove eatery Mauricio’s will serve up its last dish this Sunday.

That’s according to owners Mauricio Mendoza and his wife Luz who confirmed that they were asked to vacate the property at 589 Lighthouse Ave. last December by owners, the Charles F. Giles Family Trust. A message to the Trust seeking comment wasn’t returned.
