1. The Calamari Story Marker
Inscription. Since the early 1900's the Monterey Bay has been one of the principal fishing centers along the Pacific Coast. Today, Monterey's fishermen continue to be major contributors to the nation's supply of squid (calamari).

In the early 50's Abalonetti began to popularize this delicacy of the sea. Even after several decades, Abalonetti continues to specialize in calamari, serving over 70,000 pounds last year alone.

It is with great respect and pride we dedicate this restaurant to the calamari fishermen of Monterey Bay.
