Carmel Valley, California
$$

Its cement-mod courtyard may lack the Provençal atmosphere and gardens of the longtime Corkscrew Cafe, but Lokal merits a stop. It’s also as close to city-chic as Carmel Valley gets. Chef Brendan Jones has lured in the town’s growing under-60 set with a 28-foot bar made of salvaged redwood, microbrews on tap, and juicy skirt-steak sandwiches and duck-fat fries for lunch. Breakfast here is raveworthy too—especially the poached eggs with seasonal veggies.
