Nepenthe. A restaurant located in Big Sur, California 800 feet above the Pacific Ocean. The original land was owned by Orson Welles and Rita Hayworth who sold it to the Fassett family in whose hands it has stayed since 1947.
The word Nepenthe is first seen in Homer’s Odyssey. It was said to be a potion used by the ancients that caused one to forget sorrow, pain, grief, or suffering.
Spend a little time here, and I can pretty much guarantee that you will forget everything but the beauty in front of you. It is a tri-level property lush with vegetation, with two dining areas, a gift shop, and vistas that are beyond compare. It is so much more than a restaurant.
