Situated on a pastoral hill at Carmel Valley’s Grand Del Mar Resort, Addison has the unassuming stone entrance of a rural Tuscan mansion. Inside, the elegant décor features marble columns, gold leaf accents, sumptuous carpets, and gleamig chandeliers. The cuisine by Chef Bradley is a take on Franco-Californian comfort foods, and a seasonally rotating menu includes options like ris de veau panés with caramelized onions.
