Meet Esther Houston Esther is the Brazilian model wife of “Pastor” Joel Houston, Hillsong Church’s global director and the co-pastor of Hillsong New York City. Joel Houston […]

traumjournal: summer 2019

7 am the alarm rang, but I went back to sleep and woke up around 8:30. What’s wrong with me?  There was a dream. I held something in my hand something slippery and round. I kept telling myself to remember this while resisting the aggressively advancing sleep. I surrendered, and no memory stayed.  Yesterday met […]

You’ve heard it before: Experts say staging a home can be one of the most important steps to selling a home. But when you hear “staging,” you may think it involves a good amount of cash and hiring professional help (two big “no’s”!). Here’s a secret, though: Many elements needed for an effective staging can […]

Monterey Herald
Locals can only roll their eyes as they watch HBO’s hit series “Big Little Lies” showing Monterey moms taking leisurely, traffic-free trips across Bixby Bridge on their way to pick up kids from school (or perhaps bury a body in the woods). We all know that a drive across that famed bridge into Big Sur brings more than breathtaking beauty. These days we must also suffer traffic snarls, selfie-snappers, trespassers and general idiocy. The problem is so pervasive that the local group “Take Back Big Sur” recently hung a banner from that famed bridge that read: “OVERTOURISM IS KILLING BIG SUR.” It’s with all this in mind that I write about the expanding restaurant scene in Big Sur, a precious and vulnerable swath of land that’s home to only 1,500 hardy souls. Is this exploding food culture an unsustainable assault on a region at a tipping point? Perhaps it’s a chicken-egg thing. Is it “if you feed them they will come” or more “if they come you need to feed them?” Depends on one’s perspective. One thing is certain: Some of Monterey County’s most interesting restaurants (Big Sur Bakery, Nepenthe, Sierra Mar, Deetjen’s) are in the big south. Newest to the scene is the Big Sur Smokehouse, an upscale barbecue joint in a restored 1867 Post family homestead along Highway 1 near the entrance to Ventana Big Sur. Smoke began to rise here on July 4, and for once this wasn’t a horrible sight for Big Sur. The charming red house that dates back to the 1860s has been completely restored, although fans of classic American barbecue should not expect plastic trays, slices of white bread and sawdust on the floor. Instead, the renovated interior features gleaming subway tiles, marble countertops and urban-chic decor. It’s a scant nod to the classic roadhouse, what the website (www.bigsursmokehouse.com) calls “a classic barbecue joint with a California twist … smokehouse dining in a comfortable setting — a place to rest and recharge on your drive along the coast.” #gallery-2735105-1 { margin: auto; } #gallery-2735105-1 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-2735105-1 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-2735105-1 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; } /* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */ The exterior of the Big Sur Smokehouse.

(Contributed) The barbecue fare seems legit (although the menu does include a head-scratching quinoa/kale salad). The platters (meat, two sides, pickles, Hawaiian sweet rolls) include proper, slow-cooked brisket ($21), smoked chicken ($17), pulled pork ($16), hot links ($15) and marinated and smoked Nebrodini (trumpet) mushrooms ($17) — the latter for lost vegetarians who wander in asking for directions. Housemade sauces include: coffee-stout (local beer and fresh brew from Verve Coffee Roasters); pineapple-mustard (sweet and tangy Carolina-style sauce infused with caramelized pineapple); and spiced Carolina cider (thin with a little kick). All-important sides include: burnt-end baked beans (that alone is worth a visit); braised collard greens; chile coleslaw; baked mac ’n’ cheese; and potato salad. You’re allowed to add meat atop what they call “composed salads,” two words I never thought I’d read on a smokehouse menu. But it’s a new era. I accept that. This smokehouse has margaritas spiked with Pierre Ferrand Dry Curaçao and hibiscus tea. They have both beer and wine on draft, along with canned cocktails from San Diego-based Cutwater Spirits. They make their own pickles and sweet hand pies, and dispense their own soda. The building is (thankfully) unassuming and quaint. There’s little signage because the red house pops off the landscape, and the outdoor picnic tables help create an inviting roadside respite. Big Sur Smokehouse is open Wednesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. COAST Big Sur This architectural landmark punctuated by three enormous water tanks fashioned from 2,000-year-old redwood slabs (and houses Big Sur Coast Gallery) reopened in May under new ownership. Above the gallery is a rooftop terrace with a casual café offering panoramic views of the coastline. Part-time Big Sur residents Peter and Merle Mullin bought the property in 2016 but saw plans stalled by landslides and road closures. Eventually, the couple hired chef Nick Balla, who worked at several notable San Francisco eateries, including Bar Tartine and Smokebread. The cafe offers fresh-baked breads, soups, snacks, dips, local beer and wine and Verve coffee. A recent social media post boasted about a banana-bread muffin with chocolate ganache, caramelized banana and cocoa nibs. COAST also offers takeaway picnic snacks such as tuna confit with artichokes, sprouted split pea hummus, and rainbow trout spread. That fare instantly elevates any Pfeiffer Beach blanket party. Mercado Sagrado Pop-up An intriguing new restaurant-retail concept spent June “in residency” at the remodeled Village Shops next to the Big Sur River Inn. Owner Patrick Orosco — the man behind the novel Independent Marketplace in Sand City several years ago — brought the celebration of music, food and creative/healing arts to Big Sur following its popular run in Los Angeles. Orosco envisions this vibe returning to the Village Shops as he works to restore the property. Visiting L.A. chef Greg Arnold (Darkhorse Organic and Sproutcraft Creamery) offered elegant, plant-based brunches and dinners, with menu items such as Hen of the Woods Tartine, Ethiopian Salefa, and Jackfruit Tacos. Food artisans such as Canyon Coffee, Sun Potion Tonics, Leaves & Flowers, Botanica, and Loco Love Chocolate joined in the fun. All this is great fun. But does it cross some imaginary line? Based on current population figures, San Francisco (884,000) is one of the most food-focused cities in the country, with 4,397 restaurants. That’s one for every 201 residents. Big Sur (population 1,500) has 13 restaurants by my count. That’s one for every 115 people, a higher concentration than San Francisco or Paris. A local blogger Kate Woods Novoa (or Big Sur Kate) recently wrote an article for the online magazine Voices of Monterey Bay titled “The Nightmare at Bixby.” “The danger of this situation can no longer be ignored by anyone who cares about Big Sur; it is now a crisis,” she wrote. “The cause — whether it is overpopulation, over-tourism, overuse, over-advertising, social media, or all of it — no longer matters. It is a danger to the health and safety of all residents and visitors.” So what should locals do? Do we pretend Big Sur only exists for the Monterey 5? Do we boycott HBO? Do we push for better public transit? Do we yell and scream, or stay as composed as a kale salad? Not sure. For now, though, I say we get in the car and drive south to enjoy a hike or a meal in union with our neighbors. Maybe just choose a random Wednesday.
