Dear chowhounds: need recommendations for restaurants in Montecito for a dual purpose occasion: 50th birthday and future inlaws meeting each other for the first time.
I am looking for something fairly upscale but non-pretentious, well-priced, where we can coverse easily (ie not too noisy). Ethnic/exotic cuisines would be pushing the envelope.
Hope I am not asking too much!! Thank you for your recommendations!!
