Time counts at BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse. Since our humble beginnings back in 1978, we've continued to refine our brewhouse experience to make BJ's a place where you can make the most of any meal. We want BJ's to be a place where the moment you leave is the moment you plan on coming back. We pride ourselves in our craft and attention to detail. Our guests come here for our award-winning handcrafted beer. They come here for the Southern California twist we've put on the Chicago-style deep dish pizza. And they come here for our Pizookies®, our world-renowned dessert. But above all we know people come here to make their good times better. So in many ways we haven't just crafted a brand, but a mindset. And our guests are the reason for this. And it's because of them we're continually striving to make sure every moment they choose to spend with us counts. Welcome to BJ's, a restaurant with a Brewhouse soul.More

Il TegaminoIl Tegamino
$$$$
Italian | Carmel, Monterey / Carmel

Il Tegamino is a family run restaurant in Carmel-by-the-Sea specializing in authentic Southern Italian Comfort Food.
The cozy restaurant transports you to the look and feel of a restaurant on the Amalfi Coast, complete with lemon trees adorning the courtyard.
With just 18 seats inside and 24 seats outdoors, it is important to note our table types, Standard tables are indoor tables in our petite dining room. Often our guests make friends with locals dining near them!
Outdoor tables are in our courtyard. The courtyard is a more quiet atmosphere compared to indoors and is great for romantic dates. Our outdoor tables are covered and have heaters/blankets, but jackets on colder nights are recommended.
Due to our cozy size, table types are not changeable once reservations are set.
Established in 2015, Il Tegamino is owned by Giuseppe Panzuto and his wife Colleen. Giuseppe was born and raised in Napoli, Italy and enjoys sharing his culture and cuisine with guests More
