The passing of two icons

Sad news.  Both Club XIX, located within the lodge at Pebble Beach and Fresh Cream, a former Monterey now Carmel fin dining establishment are closing due to rough economic times. 

 

These are the kind of places where price is astronomical but so is the food.  I recall back in the day that Club XIX's 24 kt. Gold Fleck-laden consomme at 70 dollars was a must have expense account dinner starter.  But that was then.  Club XIX (pictured) has a 47 year run to be proud of.  Fresh Cream around 30 years.

    Unfortunately, with the "business friendly" atmosphere that exists with the current administration that been created by someone who lives in that big white house in, where is it, DC?.......there's probably going to be more of these stories.

      so true! So many businesses are hitting the dust due to un-friendly business practices of regulations and high taxes for everyone except Buffet and GE. We are holding on but no one wants to invest due to Dodd Frank expensive rules. Small business can't pay a big legal team like Buffets.

      We dont travel much now unless our client pays, because we use live Meeting.
