hello! my husband and i are planning a trip to santa barbara next weekend. we have been to and love julienne, and have reservations there on friday night. i'm looking for a casual option for saturday night. on previous trips, we've been to petit valentien, olio pizzeria, and wine cask, which were all just ok. we have been to stella mare's a couple times for brunch, which was nice, but looking for something different. i've been doing some research and come across mentions of these restaurants - any opinions?
- scarlett begonia - the website does not really post a dinner menu and haven't been able to find any in-depth reviews of dinner service online. is it on par food/price-wise with julienne?
- state and fig
- le relais de paris
any other options i am overlooking? would any of these be better suited for brunch rather than dinner? we do love renaud's, but could mix things up... on that note, how does jeannine’s stack up?
thanks so much in advance!
