Crescent City suggestions?

With two nights to eat in Crescent City, I suggest the Chart Room twice. If fish is not your thing our Thai House is good, especially the "Catfish In A Clay Pot" (get it spicy). The beauty of the Chart Room is its location, food and price. Steamer clams are fantastic!!! Shrimp everything is good. They even have Fat Tire beer and chocolate cake.
As for lunch, there is one great thing to do: buy a sandwich to go anywhere (Subway, grocery store...) then drive to Pebble Beach Drive and park next to the grass covered cliffs and picnic. The best spot is just north of Condor and Pebble Beach. You will know you are one of the luckiest people on the planet when you see and hear the waves pounding at your feet while sitting upon the tree framed grass in the bright California sun, eating your sandwiches

I heard Rolf's moved to the Little Red School House just down the road about 8 miles. The Chartroom is not a two story place and I do not know of a flame grill in town for fish.

Coconut Rice with Black Beans and Fried Plantains

We tried it. Had fun doing it. Then invited our neighbor to help with the leftovers the next day. Very good. We skipped the hot peppers, but will use them next time. Thanks.

I assume the "Charthouse" comments refer to the "Chartroom" at the harbor. It is like any restaurant. You must order the right stuff. Their fish and chips are the best, period. Their prime rib is great. Veggie lasagna is good, but not so great. It also is actually on the water. It opens at 5am so I recommend the taco omelet or grilled fish and eggs. For locals, the Chartroom is the choice for fish.

Sounds great here! Will try this weekend. The jalapeƱos will be omited, but I'm looking forward to trying the plantains. Thanks
