Monterey Coastal Cuisine to debut April 3 in downtown Carmel


Monterey Coastal Cuisine is set to debut a selection of sushi, seafood and steaks when it opens April 3 in downtown Carmel.

The locally owned and operated restaurant is co-owned by Chris Thomas, who has spent his career in the restaurant industry, and Paul Estridge Jr., founder of Estridge Homes. It will open at 110 W. Main St. just east of the Monon Greenway.

“(The owners) want people to walk away with not only having a great dining experience but a great time,” said Chris Shute of Ogle Design, who is handling marketing for the restaurant.

The menu will feature sushi, seafood and steaks with bars serving guests indoors and on the outdoor patio.

“The flavor is going to be fresh in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere,” Shute said. “People can dress up or dress down. They can come in off the Monon.”

Originally planned to open in the fall of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic slowed renovation of the site.
