1 South: Pacific Grove, Fandango

update, p.122
A long-time favorite for a special night out, atmospheric Fandango is just off Pacific Grove’s main street.  Stick to the classics—rack of lamb Provencal, fresh petrale sole, paella—and head to the Grand Marnier souffle for dessert (I prefer the hot version, but when it isn’t available a frozen version usually is).  Proprietor Alan F. Shugart’s book—“Fandango: The Story of Two Guys Who Wanted to Own a Restaurant”--makes a good souvenir.  It tells the interesting story behind the restaurant and also includes some favorite recipes.
