Nepenthe was a medicine used in Ancient Greece as a drug of forgetfulness to banish sorrows and woes, so Nepenthe Restaurant in Big Sur is aptly named. Not only does it have a breathtaking view of the coastline on one side and the beautiful Santa Lucia Mountains on the other, their menu, while small, will leave you concentrating on your food and not your worries.
Nepenthe can't guarantee you a spiritual awakening, but the ambiance paired with fresh plates like scallops served with fruit salsa and coconut curry sauce, or the famous Ambrosiaburger, a ground steak sandwich smothered in their famous ambrosia sauce is sure to keep relaxed during your time there. Don't forget dessert if you can fit it. Their four layer chocolate fudge cake is a melt in your mouth favorite.
