In honor of Monterey’s 247th Birthday, Estéban Restaurant located at historic Casa Munras Garden Hotel & Spa will be donating 10% of all food sales to the Old Monterey Foundation for a second year. Founded with the mission to promote, support, and enhance the artistic, cultural, and historic environment of historic Downtown Monterey, the Old Monterey Foundation along with Casa Munras Garden Hotel & Spa both encompass an affinity for maintaining, protecting, and sharing the deep-rooted history of Monterey. Most recently the Old Monterey Foundation unveiled a Lower Presidio Historic Park entrance sign, the first step of many to create awareness of the park and Presidio of Monterey Museum, which showcases Monterey’s military history and is considered to be the “jewel” of the City of Monterey’s park system.
From its founding on June 3, 1770 Monterey’s Spanish heritage can be experienced today through the diverse architectural styles found throughout historic Downtown Monterey. Casa Munras originally constructed in 1824 by Spanish Diplomat Don Estéban Munras continues to pay homage to its roots by preserving the history of the Munras family and the original residence constructed with handmade 32-inch adobe bricks. A portion of the original structure is still standing, encompassed in the walls of the Marbella Meeting Room.
Estéban Restaurant located at historic Casa Munras Garden Hotel & Spa is the heart of authentic Monterey dining, offering a unique culinary experience. Serving traditional Spanish-inspired cuisine with a pinch of adventure, Estéban Restaurant invites you to sip, savor, and share by the warmth of the fireplace or in the relaxing outdoor patio.
