Montrio Bistro

Montrio Bistro Review

This quirky, converted firehouse, with its rawhide walls and iron indoor trellises, has a wonderfully sophisticated menu. Chef Tony Baker uses organic produce and meats and sustainably sourced seafood to create imaginative dishes that reflect local agriculture, such as baby artichoke risotto fritters, and pesto-rubbed prime sirloin with marinated prawns, spinach, and a red wine–veal reduction sauce. The wine list also draws primarily on California—Monterey-area wineries are well represented—and signature cocktails are infused with local fruits, herbs, and veggies.
