Mediterranean fare with a twist

Jeninni Kitchen & Wine Bar brings some urban vibe to idyllic Pacific Grove. This place serves Spanish tapas and Mediterranean mains from its clean, open kitchen.

Some of the restaurant's highlights are the crispy octopus served with Calabrian chilli and lemon mermelada; salmon rillettes with manzanilla butter; pilav prepared with toasted pumpkin seeds, tossed with greens and yogurt crema and topped with fresh dungeness crab. Even if you're not into desserts, you may want to make an exception. Jeninni Kitchen & Wine Bar prepares desserts like no other. The goat's milk flan with goat's milk caramel and brown butter-peanut dukkah (an Egyptian herb-nut mix) is flavor explosion. The pumpkin sundae served with pistachio and sesame candy and pomegranate molasses also makes for a mind-blowing combination. Pair the dishes with the restaurant's new wine list ( which has proven to be one of the most adventurous of any restaurant around) and settle in for a night of culinary delights.
