My husband and I are making the drive from San Fran to LA with overnight stops in Carmel and Santa Barbara. We expect to make it to Santa Barbara in the evening and want a recommendation on the best dinner spot to really get a feel for the area as well as enjoy the best food. We are staying at the Canary Hotel so ideally we do not want to take our car out for the evening (since we would be driving all day). Some of the places that look good include, Scarlett Begonia, Sama Sama and the Lark. Any suggestions on which to choose (or of any others to add to the mix)?
