Casa Munras and Estéban Restaurant share the Old Monterey Foundation’s mission to maintain, protect and share the deep-rooted history of Monterey. Executive Chef Gus Trejo shows his support through the creation of a bespoke menu for the birthday celebration.  Dishes with the freshest and finest ingredients available from local farmers and artisans are served and three signature cocktails have been created to toast this festive evening, including Spanish Heiress, Estéban Love Potion, and Spanish Paradise.

From its founding on June 3, 1770, Monterey’s Spanish heritage is experienced today through the diverse architectural styles throughout Downtown Monterey Heritage District.  Casa Munras, originally constructed in 1824 by Spanish diplomat Don Estéban Munras, continues to pay homage to its roots. A part of the original residence remains intact in the hotel’s Marbella Meeting Room.  It serves as a touchstone to the past and an inspiration to share the utmost hospitality to visitors.

Old Monterey Foundation’s mission is to promote, support and enhance the artistic, cultural and historic environment of downtown Monterey.

Estéban Restaurant is located at 700 Munras Avenue adjacent to the Casa Munras Garden Hotel & Spa in Monterey, CA and features Spanish cuisine with California flair.
