Located in the former Stokes Adobe in Monterey, Restaurant 1833 resides in a national heritage site that is rich with historical elements from Monterey's historical background. Named after the year the building was established, 1833, the building once housed a former apothecary, was home to California's first newspaper press, was formerly the famous Gallatin's restaurant, and formerly contained the first kiln in California.
The two-story restaurant is a design-forward space with regal, turn-of-the-century elements that play homage to the buildings rich history in each of the six interior spaces. The restaurant's outdoor space provides an intimate setting for outdoor dining, and a patio area with four fire pits which provide the perfect space for gusts to sit back and relax while enjoying various small bites and custom cocktails made by 1833's own Bar Smith.
Executive Chef Levi Mezick has created a menu that highlights regionally specific ingredients including Monterey seafood; greens and lettuces sourced from Salinas and Carmel Valley; and sea salt foraged from Big Sur, giving the consumer an authentic sense of the place, with high quality, fresh and seasonal ingredients.
