Dine Out with Friends table and chairs

It's been more than 14 years since celebrated chef Hisayuki "Max" Muramatsu opened his stylish-yet-friendly eatery in Pacific Grove. Max is a Tokyo-born, French-trained, award winning chef who cooked at Maxim's of Paris in Tokyo and was twice named best chef in Tokyo. He is well known as the former executive chef at the prestigious Anton & Michel in Carmel. His charming wife Yuko is in charge of the front of the house. Max’s Grill focuses on offering the freshest of food with warm, family-like friendliness. Max personally makes everything from scratch – even his own bread. He changes a number of his menu items regularly to take advantage of the area’s seasonal offerings in both fresh seafood and produce and to provide new culinary delights for his regular customers. Each plate is prepared with a casual, international flair, outstanding culinary techniques and fresh California tastes. A premium-yet-modest Wine List is assembled to complement the dining experience. Guests are also invited to bring their own favorite bottle of wine to enjoy with their meal. Check out their website to read about their Sunset Specials and Three-Course Prix Fixe specials. They're open for dinner from 5:00pm - 9:00pm. Tell them you're a Friend of the Pacific Grove Library and they will donate a portion of their proceeds for the night to the Friends. This is a delicious way to support the library.
