Chef Brendan Jones opened Lokal in May of 2012. Jones, a veteran of Michelin-starred Mugaritz in Spain, and the Cachagua General Store employs cutting edge preparations of the bounty of fresh local ingredients, and a willingness to try every new, and sometimes crazy, technique out there. Lokal took over the space that formerly housed the Chatterbox in Carmel Valley in September of 2011 and extensively renovated it over a period of nine months. It now includes a 28 foot bar built from redwood salvaged from the legendary Monterey Pops Festival stage, and a spacious patio, giving area diners a space to enjoy the warm Carmel Valley days and nights. A visit to Carmel isn't complete without a meal at Lokal, a true neighborhood gem.
