Dine Out With Friends at Taste Cafe & Bistro. Open since 1990, Taste is a cozy European style restaurant where guests can view chef/owner Bill Karaki prepare each dish from scratch. Their European influence menu features items such as herb-roasted chicken, grilled rabbit, escargots, pastas, organic salads, exceptional soups and au gratin potatoes. The marvelous fresh made brioche bread pudding, apple galette and chocolate torte should not be missed. Come join us for a great meal that is like a slice of Europe in the heart of lovely Pacific Grove. Tell them you're a Friend of 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.
