145 Main St, Salinas, CA, United States
If you're mouth doesn't start watering at the sound of "Fresh Cream" restaurant, check your pulse. This lounge/restaurant has a menu that matches its provocative name. From lobster raviolis to cassolette d'escargots for appetizers, to Angus beef filet mignon, mahi mahi and dungeness crab, Fresh Cream knows what the taste buds desire. Leave room for dessert, because resisting a carmel lava cake, Grand Marnier souffle, or a dessert sampler, is futile. The food has been described as French inspired Californian cuisine, and the rich culinary history and inventive fusions that mark each cuisine respectively are evident in Fresh Cream's concoctions.
Fresh Cream also has a lounge that serves up 28 signature cocktails. The Lounge's menu has many of the same items as the dining room but at a reduced price. Another signature aspect of the lounge is that it aims for comfortable intimacy. Though the design is very modern, sitting rigid in straight back chairs is not The Lounge's idea of giving its guests a good time. Like the main dining room, The Lounge strives for a pleasant experience that will leave you relaxed and satisfied.
