Whenever we go to Carmel, we always are on the lookout for restaurants that are not tourist traps and are favored by the locals. Patisserie Boissiere is one of those gems in Carmel by Sea. It is located in Carmel Plaza on the outside on the street. We have had lunch there several times and they also serve dinner. We wanted to eat light since we were having an early dinner that night and ordered the marinated artichoke. WOW...to die for. It was cooked and then marinated in a vinegarette dressing. I had five prawns added to mine. It was served on a bed of greens with tomatoes and cucumbers on the side with basil mayonnaise to dip the leaves in. There were other appetizing entrees to chose from, but this was just right for us. If you go for lunch, get there when they open at 11:30 since the place fills up pretty fast closer to noon.
