I'm having lunch tomorrow in the Santa Barbara area and would like your help to pick two options. I'm not sure if we'll lunch in Santa Barbara proper or near the wineries in Los Olivos. So I want one choice in each area.
AFter a bit of research and reading menus, I have chosen Wine Cask in Santa Barbara and Los Olivos Cafe in Los Olivos. These appeal because they are actually open for lunch (so many of the places praised in that area are dinner only), the menu of Cal-Ital-French food sounds good for lunch, and they have good wine lists with by-the-glass options.
My question is, is there a better option in either case? Anything with similar prices and cuisine, but superior in other aspects?
