ABOUT THE HER HELMET THURSDAYS PROJECT:
Businesses and organizations participating in HER Helmet Thursdays help HER / Mother Earth by providing discounts on Thursdays for people who bike. A long-term project with no scheduled end-date, HER Helmet Thursdays was launched in 2009 in Monterey County, California as a public service. NOTE: When participating businesses and organizations sign up, they are provided a staff reference sheet. Many have frequent staff changes. Just in case a staff person on duty isn't familiar with this long-term project, it may be helpful to have the listing for that location pulled up on your mobile phone screen (or print a copy of their listing to take along), so you're prepared to kindly show their listing.
Before claiming discount, refer to FAQs and project details, including date restrictions, in "LISTINGS, Map, How to Get the Discounts, and FAQs about HER Helmet Thursdays" at http://www.bikemonterey.org.

ABOUT THIS PARTICIPANT:
Again in 2019 Passionfish was voted "Best Restaurant in Pacific Grove," as well as "Best Restaurant over 10 Years Old," in the Monterey County Weekly's annual Readers Poll.

The multiple award-winning Passionfish is popular with both visitors and locals.

A HER Helmet Thursdays charter participant since 2009, Passionfish was also first Monterey County restaurant to be certified in the Monterey Bay Green Business Program - http://www.montereybaygreenbusiness.org/GBListings.html Passionfish uses many sustainable and organically grown ingredients. Passionfish is also a participant in the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch program -
http://www.seafoodwatch.org And Passionfish takes their commitment to environmental sustainability beyond the average, even challenging employees to a 30-day period of no plastic: http://www.montereycountyweekly.com/blogs/food_blog/article_f326c7c2-29e3-11e3-a168-0019bb30f31a.html

Owners Ted and Cindy Walter are unassuming community leaders, while Passionfish is one of the few Monterey County restaurants to hold a Zagat rating.

What to try? What not to try! Their sea scallop/caper-raisin-walnut relish/artichoke risotta cake nibbles; their crispy tilapia with thyme mashed potatoes and red wine-balsamic butter sauce; their chocolate truffle torte with five-spice syrup; just anything on their menu! Passionfish also has an award-winning wine list, including sustainably produced grapes. Enjoy!

Bike Tips:

Passionfish is in downtown Pacific Grove, kitty-corner from the PG Post Office, and not far from the coastal bike/multi-use trail. Leave the trail at Lovers Point, then take 17th Street up to Lighthouse Avenue. Make a right on Lighthouse Avenue and continue to Congress. Passionfish will be on your left, at Lighthouse and Congress.
