Hi Chowers, I'm going up to S.B. for my son's birthday on November 2 (a Friday night). He's a student at UCSB and loves great steak, Italian, Mexican or Cal Cuisine. I did some checking on various Santa Barabara food sites and got a few recommendations, but nothing stood out. Money IS an issue. I don't want to spend $75.00-100.00 per person...more in the $50. per range. Any suggestions? Can be in Goleta, Santa Barbara or Montecito. Love the type of place that isn't yet on everyone's radar, so come on Chowers hip me to the right spots. Thanks, TV Tom
Hi Chowers, I recently went to my once favorite breakfast/lunch spot in Silverlake and noticed a whole new staff. When I asked what had happened to Ann and Phillipe (I think that was his name/the main chef) they had no answers. Anyone know what this fab pair of is up to? A new spot perhaps? Let me know...thanks!
Though another poster recommended Farfalla's Brazilian sidekick, I heartily endorse Farfalla for really great Italian. bring wine if you want ...I think corkage is around $14. a bottle. Great food and vibe and real close to the Greek.
