Last minute overnight stay in Carmel

Hello - my fiancé and I decided to stay overnight in Carmel last minute while we drive down the coast. Haven't had time to do any research so any recs for breakfast/lunch/dinner in the Carmel Monterey bay area would be great!

two vegans and a picky eater

update: It was a group of 6 people: 2 vegans, one picky eater (with spices), 2 carnivores (who wouldnt have known what to do with themselves if there was only veggie friendly options), and then me who is open to anything!

Therefore - we went to Spring Street Natural for dinner on Friday. While it is not my favorite restaurant in the city, it satisfied everybody's special needs so it worked perfectly for my group. Thank you everyone for the input.

two vegans and a picky eater

I've been asked to make a last minute dinner reservation for tomorrow night in which two of the people attending are vegans and one is an extremely picky eater (particularly no rosemary, sage, thyme, ginger - basically no thai, indian, or french food). Any help would be appreciated!!!

babbo for non-meat eater

I am going to babbo for dinner this week with some friends. Many of the dishes I have read about are meat based. What dishes would people recommend for someone who does not eat meat - but does eat seafood??

rome for one night

my boyfriend and i will be heading to rome for one night (Friday) and are trying to decide where to have dinner -- felice or perilli. I know this has been discussed multiple times on various chowhound posts. However, cacio e pepe was (still is) my FAVORITE dish when i studied in rome 5 years ago.... which is why I am leaning towards da felice. good decision?! has anyone had the cacio e pepe at perilli? is it still as good as i remember at da felice?

furthermore -- we need to be at the airport around 1pm. any ideas where we can grab lunch to bring with us before we go would be greatly appreciated! I would have said frontonis but i am so sad to see that my favorite place in rome has closed :(
