Ice Cream Shop

McConnell’s Fine Ice Creams

For McConnell’s of Santa Barbara owner and CEO Michael Palmer, it feels equally good to make and to eat great ice cream: “To be able to maintain our independence and focus on the most important thing ​— ​the product ​— ​is a luxury and a pleasure.” McConnell’s has one of the more dramatic stories from 2018’s natural disasters. The company opened its “New Dairy” in December 2017 in Oxnard, and, according to Palmer, “when the mudslides cut off the 101 last January, we went into action, sending crews ’round the clock ​— ​by boat and car, on multi-hour trips ​— ​to Oxnard.”

With four locations in Santa Barbara and exceptional customer service, Renaud’s is always a sweet treat!

Doughnut Shop

Spudnuts takes the cake, or doughnut, yet again for Best Doughnut Shop in town. The secret to making the delicious treats so fluffy is using potato flour. “That’s what makes the doughnuts stand out so much,” said Spudnuts employee Marcelo Rocha. While you can never go wrong with a classic old-fashioned, Rocha recommends customers try his favorite, tiger tails. “They are amazing!” he said. The doughnuts are twisted with chocolate and rolled in cinnamon, making them look like actual tiger tails ​— ​what a fun treat!

Crushcakes & Café

At Crushcakes & Café, the motivation to be the best comes from “people and food,” according to owner Shannon Gaston. “Making people happy with delicious food and coffee,” she said, equals “instant gratification!” Last winter, the downtown Santa Barbara store was broken into twice. Gaston reported that, while the person was not caught the first time, “a week later they broke in again and they were caught, thanks to our awesome neighbor, who called the police when he saw two legs and a torso wiggling and stuck in one of our windows!” Gaston sent out a “huge thank-you to the SBPD and the K-Nine Unit” for apprehending the cupcake bandit, who it turned out was also a frequent customer at the Carpinteria branch.

Goleta Restaurant

Kyle’s Kitchen

Lots of businesses give a nod toward good causes, but no restaurant takes that outreach further than Kyle’s Kitchen, which made fundraising for special-needs programs a leading edge of its brand. Pair that with fairly priced and freshly made burgers, sandwiches, and salads, and the mini-chain of three restaurants easily takes the Goleta cake. Owner Jay Ferro, who opened the first Kyle’s about four years ago, believes Goleta loves his place because of that “balance between great, affordable food and our commitment to giving back to the special-needs community.” He said, “We will continue to work every day to improve and be the best restaurant we can be. Thank you for your trust in us!”

Empty Bowl Gourmet Noodle Bar

38 W. Victoria St., Ste. 109 335-2426 emptybowlnoodle.com

Though not a typical Thai joint nor simply a place for noodles, Empty Bowl is constantly elevating the overall Asian food experience in Santa Barbara ​— ​and will open a new place called Khao Kaeng on Coast Village Road soon. “We use all-natural, free-range meats and poultry, and we have very little space for storage, so it allows us to cut fresh produce daily,” said co-owner Jerry Lee, who served his first bowl of “Thai comfort street food noodles” on April 12, 2014. His favorite part? “Hearing customers tell me they dream about our noodles.”

Isla Vista Restaurant

Freebirds World Burrito

879 Embarcadero del Norte, Isla Vista 968-0123

There’s only one good reason to find yourself in Isla Vista late at night, and that’s to go to Freebirds. Legendary for its dinosaur-sized burritos and nachos, the place makes such an impression that locals find themselves missing it when they’re away. The walls are filled with pictures of people traveling the world, expressing their desire for a Freebirds World Burrito. If that doesn’t paint a picture of their quirky clientele, buy a burrito, take a seat, and enjoy late-night people watching.

Montecito Restaurant

The Honor Bar

1255 Coast Village Rd. 969-6964 honorbar.com

When it opened in February 2015, The Honor Bar, which is part of the nationally acclaimed Hillstone Restaurant Group, quickly became a go-to place for eating, drinking, and being seen in Montecito. It further cemented its importance when it became the first restaurant to reopen after the mudslide. “It’s approachable, but our bedrock principle is doing things well and paying attention to the preparation and ingredients,” said GM Nicholas Asoli of their focus on straightforward classics like the cheeseburger. “We also want the experience to feel special, so we worked a lot on the design and feel of the place to strike a balance between feeling casual [and] premium quality. Lastly, a genuine smile with graceful, efficient service never goes out of style.”

117 Harbor Wy., Ste. A 965-9564 sbfish.com

Brian Colgate was just 19 years old when he opened the Santa Barbara Fish Market in a humble corner of the harbor back in 2000, but it’s been the prime place for about 1,000 weekly customers ​— ​not to mention nearly 100 restaurants in the tri-county area ​— ​to buy fresh-off-the-boat seafood ever since. “We are focused on providing the very freshest premium-quality seafood at a fair price,” said Colgate, who also serves as the Commercial Fishermen of Santa Barbara’s direct outlet to the public, usually with more than 15 fresh items available each day. “The favorite part of my job is providing our community with a connection to the ocean through providing healthy seafood that is being harvested in a sustainable manner so generations to come can be happy and healthy!”

Santa Ynez Valley Restaurant

Industrial Eats

181 Industrial Wy., Buellton 688-8807 industrialeats.com

“We brought a space where you can get a beef-tongue pastrami Reuben and listen to Wu-Tang,” said Jeff Olsson of what he and his wife, Janet Olsson, gave the Santa Ynez Valley when they opened Industrial Eats in December 2013. The walk-up ordering style is casual, the wood-fired food is ingredient driven, and the scene is winemaker forward. “We just cook the food we want to eat and not what we think people want to eat, and weirdly it seems to be working,” he said. What’s his favorite part? “Hiring, teaching, and watching people get it,” he said. “With almost everyone who works here, there was a moment when I turned to Janet and said, ‘So-and-so just figured it out.’ It’s a good moment.”

Appetizers/Tapas

No restaurant in Santa Barbara wears Spain on its sleeve like Loquita, which started serving authentic Spanish cuisine ​— ​from tapas, pintxos, and paella to txakolina, sherry, and gin ’n’ tonics ​— ​on the edge of the Funk Zone in October 2016. “It’s an easy way to try several different dishes and to share the experience with friends,” said owner Sherry Villanueva of the small-plates format. “We like to offer our guests an opportunity for exploration, and small plates are particularly conducive to that. You can try a few things without having to make an entire meal commitment on just one.”

Breakfast

Cajun Kitchen

Cajun Kitchen’s breakfast is everything comfort food should be ​— ​delicious, giant sized, and did I say delicious? This incredible area breakfast spot offers everything from genuinely Cajun to fantastic Mexican dishes. The Santa Barbara staple is owned and operated by the Jimenez family. In 1984, Richard Jimenez Sr., a prep cook with no management experience, decided to take over the struggling De la Vina location. Since then, they’ve opened four more locations ​— ​three in the Santa Barbara area and one in Ventura ​— ​and have provided locals with incredible chilaquiles, French toast, blackened catfish, and much more!

The Blue Owl is everyone’s go-to place after a late night of merriment. The small restaurant located on Canon Perdido Street somehow manages to accommodate dozens of individuals, making for a fun after-party vibe with incredible Asian-inspired dishes. One former customer, A.J., loved the food and atmosphere so much she applied for a job. “I need to work here!” she remembered thinking one late night. A.J. got the job the next day and has happily worked at The Blue Owl for over a year. “I’ve seen it all,” she said about the late-night shifts.

China Pavilion is readers’ go-to when they need a Chinese food craving satisfied. Their dishes are packed with flavor, and they offer chicken, beef, pork, seafood, and incredible veggie options. Favorites among regulars are the spicy basil beef, the crispy walnut shrimp, and of course, the orange-peel chicken. The beautifully decorated restaurant also offers a special dim sum menu on weekends that customers love. China Pavilion has a great love and appreciation for their customers.

French Restaurant

Truth be told, bouchon’s cuisine isn’t so much French as it is California “wine country,” but it did open on Bastille Day of 1998 and owner Mitchell Sjerven admits that they do employ classic French culinary techniques. How do they stay relevant 20 years later? “Update the cuisine without succumbing to fads, create a service culture that honors the true spirit of hospitality, and be sure to update the dining environment so you don’t look like an old, no-longer-relevant restaurant,” said Sjerven. “The four pillars of a truly great dining experience ​— ​be it taco stand or three-star Michelin ​— ​have to be right: great food, a proper beverage list that works with the food, fantastic people that you can tell really like their job, and a warm and inviting ambience.”

Indian Restaurant

Flavor of India

Since 1991, Puran Joshan and his family have served saag paneer, tandoori chicken, lassi, and other traditional Punjabi foods to Santa Barbara from the kitchen of their beloved Flavor of India restaurant on State Street. That’s made them the perennial winner in this category and a place that families return to month after month. “When a customer comes in, they are treating us,” Joshan told us a couple of years ago. “We have seen our customers grow up and bring their own kids to the restaurant. It’s very special.”

Italian Restaurant

Dario Furlati’s Ca’ Dario empire is on the rise, now with five locations from the original 1997 restaurant in downtown Santa Barbara to the adjacent pizzeria, two spots in the Public Market, and a new location in Goleta. “Our customers are world travelers, especially to Italy, so they developed a palate for Italian food and recognized our dishes when they come back to our restaurant,” said Furlati. “We use authentic imported pasta, flour, cheese, tomatoes, and olive oil to create our dishes without cutting corners therefore, our customers find our quality the same [as], if not even better than, abroad.”

Seafood Restaurant • Clam Chowder

Brophy Bros. Clam Bar & Restaurant

Overlooking the sea of sailboat masts in the Santa Barbara Harbor and the breathtaking Santa Ynez Mountains in the distance, Brophy Bros. epitomizes all that’s right about our oceanside town. Where else can you can eat seafood while watching a commercial fishing boat unload? “The small footprint forces interaction and creates a real intimate setting,” said owner John Bennett, whose family started the restaurant in 1986. “We make the chowder daily, thicken with roux, and add heavy cream right before serving. We are fortunate to have the volume we do ​— ​this helps keep the product moving.”

Runner-Up (Seafood Restaurant and Clam Chowder): Lure Fish House

Sushi Restaurant

Arigato Sushi

You can almost always expect a wait time at this first-come, first-served restaurant, but the incredible Japanese fusion cuisine and attentive service is well worth the wait! Servers are well versed with the menu and can help guide overwhelmed first-time visitors with the more than 65 sushi rolls and the many nigiri and sashimi options. If you’re looking for dinner and a show, you can’t go wrong with the popular “locals-only” appetizer ​— ​broiled scallops, crab, shiitake mushrooms, and onions served on a bed of sushi rice and brought out flaming! Not a huge surprise considering all of Arigato’s dishes are on fire!

Vegetarian/Vegan Restaurant

It figures that Santa Barbara would lead the way in taking vegetarian/vegan cuisine into the 21st century. We have always valued plant-based eating in this town, and now we have more choices than ever before when it comes to fine dining the vegetarian way. At Mesa Verde, the combinations on offer are not only healthy they are exquisite both in flavor and in presentation. Whether you stick with the Mexican-influenced side of the menu and order one of their amazing tacos or empanadas, or you lean toward the delicious tajine and harissas on the main-course menu, you can be sure that you will leave Mesa Verde happy and feeling great.

Sandwich

South Coast Deli

There’s a special place in locals’ hearts for this hometown sandwich shop. South Coast not only offers some of the best and largest sandwiches in town, but they also offer customers the option to turn those sandwiches into equally incredible and large salads. The only thing better than grabbing lunch at South Coast in Santa Barbara is knowing that in doing so you are supporting a local business that has long been committed to using products that are sustainable, renewable, and compostable. The deli boasts more than 15 years of being 100 percent plastic-free ​— ​go South Coast Deli!

Natural Cafe Paul Wellman

Veggie Burger

The Natural Café

Meatless burgers seem all the rage these days, with ambitious culinary upstarts replacing animal protein with nutritionally sound and environmentally kind plant-based patties. But to longtime patrons of this Santa Barbara fixture of casual, fresh fare, much of that conversation was pushed to the back burner long ago with their very first bite of the Zen Burger. Or maybe it was the Good Karma Burger. Or the establishment’s Natural Burger. Whatever veggie option it may be, the experience ​— ​at three South County locations ​— ​delivers the comfort of a warm plate of food at a fair price.

Last year, Shalhoob Meat Company ​— ​which opened its butcher shop in 1973 ​— ​launched its Funk Zone Patio, a food-and-drink oasis for locals and visitors alike along the waterfront, near the foot of Stearns Wharf. Among the burgers and falafel, the tangy spices of an old favorite have wafted to the top: the classic tri-tip cut, cooked in oakwood smoke and finished Santa Maria style before landing on your picnic table, sandwiched between slices of the house garlic bread. “The locals are saying that the tri-tip sandwich is the best in Santa Barbara County,” LJ Shalhoob has noted proudly.

Jill’s Place Restaurant

632 Santa Barbara St. 963-0378 jillsplacesb.com

Jill’s Place is a true local haunt ​— ​in fact, it would never have been called that if it weren’t for the customers, who frequently said they were going to Jill’s Place rather than Shalhoob Deli, which was the original name when it opened in 1987. In 2002, Jill Shalhoob, of the legendary butcher family, remodeled the place and accepted the name, and it’s now known for expert steaks, stiff drinks, and friendly times. “My food is simply clean, healthy comfort food ​— ​people like the simplicity of good ol’-fashioned home-style cooking,” said Shalhoob, who loves interacting with customers and knows she has a great staff. “They are loyal and hardworking, and they care about Jill’s Place. I hear compliments from customers all the time about the staff, from the back of the house to the servers and bartenders.”

The Habit Burger Grill

The Habit isn’t a favorite just among locals ​— ​the signature Charburger has been ranked as one of the best burgers in the United States. Since opening its first burger stand in 1969 in Old Town Goleta, the franchise has outgrown its hometown and claims more than 230 restaurants across the States and around the world. Just as the company’s reach has expanded, so has its heart. The Habit has raised more than $1 million for No Kid Hungry, which distributes nutritious food to children across the country.

Breakfast Burrito

Super Cucas

One of the many super things about Super Cucas is their assortment of breakfast burritos. The giant burritos ​— ​stuffed with your choice of meat, scrambled eggs, cheese, and potatoes and beautifully wrapped together in a warm flour tortilla ​— ​are the perfect on-the-go breakfast! And with 20 different options, how could you go wrong? The most popular breakfast burrito among customers is the Ranchero, which comes with both chorizo and bacon and is finished off with a fresh and colorful ranchero salsa. As the first taqueria in Santa Barbara, Super Cucas offers much more than just the best breakfast burritos in town. It has been providing the community with delicious Mexican food at reasonable prices in incredible portions since 1991. Locals could not be more thankful!

Tacos

Lilly’s Taquería

What gives? Lilly’s Taquería doesn’t serve beer and is closed every taco Tuesday. Yet the line is often out the door. Combinations of words may exist that could adequately describe human cravings for cooked animal protein, ample grease, and a simple wrap of processed corn, but it’s far more fair to let the asada, adobada, cachete, and lengua do the talking. Pithy posts prevail when it comes to food reviews across social media. In high praise of Lilly’s, we’ll single out “undefeated” and “national treasure.”

Pizza

Rusty’s Pizza Parlor

Multiple locations 564-1111 rustyspizza.com

In 1969, Roger and Carol Duncan pooled their pennies and opened Rusty’s Roast Beef in Isla Vista. Not long after, the Duncans saw a need for a family-style pizza parlor in Santa Barbara and decided to change their roast-beef business into an Italian pie restaurant. Not wanting to purchase a new sign, the couple pulled out the handsaw and cut their existing sign in half, leaving “Rusty’s” and adding “Pizza Parlor.” And the rest is history. Since then, Rusty’s has been a treasured part of the community, filling the paramount pizza niche with eight pizza parlors that are perfect for family gatherings, quick lunches, and, of course, perfect pizzas.

Stellar Service

The Palace Grill

This upscale downtown destination has long occupied Santa Barbara’s greater culinary palate as one of the region’s finest. From jalapeño martinis and popcorn shrimp ​— ​for starters ​— ​to soft-shell crabs and blackened catfish, its Cajun-Creole favorites have become classics. But there’s more. Don’t forget, these memory-making plates of food are prepared and delivered by friendly, knowledgeable, efficient folk, whose hard work has kept these downtown doors open over the decades. Plus, they won’t tell you what to order or drop the check too soon. Lift a glass to that.

Los Agaves Paul Wellman

Mexican Restaurant • Burrito • Salsa

With Los Agaves being Indy readers’ choice for Best Burrito, Best Salsa, and Best Mexican Restaurant, the only logical next step is to rush over to one of their three locations in town for their incredible burrito mojado ​— ​a burrito topped with salsa roja. The next best thing is their chile verde burrito, filled with pork in salsa verde. Los Agaves brings together two of the most wonderful things, salsa and burritos ​— ​what a combination! Owners Carlos and Christian Luna take pride in the fact that “we are a family-owned-and-run business, so coming to Los Agaves is like coming to eat with family. We do our very best to make you feel at home and provide the very best service.” Owners Carlos and Christian Luna take pride in the fact that “we are a family-owned and run business, so coming to Los Agaves is like coming to eat with family.

When the patio includes optional seating right on the sand, there’s only one place in Santa Barbara you could be thinking of: Shoreline Café at Leadbetter Beach. A California institution that never fails to deliver on the dream, Shoreline combines the ultimate dramatic setting with a pitch-perfect beachy menu. As a result, every meal here, no matter how bathing-suit casual, becomes a memorable occasion. Manager Cameron Pyles cites serving hundreds of first responders who were weary and hungry from battling the Thomas Fire as just one of the unforgettable things that happened at Shoreline in 2018.


The spots

Bibi Ji is one of the newest restaurants in Santa Barbara, but it’s already the most exciting. This modern Indian restaurant (by way of NYC and SF) is located right on State Street in a neon-light-covered space that works for anything from date night to a group dinner to solo drinks at the bar. We’d drive up from LA just for the uni with biryani rice, but as long as you’re here, you should go ahead and order the full $50 chef’s tasting menu - it gets you eight of the best dishes on the menu, including an entire curry sampler platter and two different desserts.

Bologna Kitchen

“We dedicate ourselves to serving iconic pasta dishes like carbonara, cacio e pepe, bolognese, amatriciana and more. With half of our founding team born and raised in Italy and spending many years researching and traveling there, we discovered the restaurants and the chefs that make the best versions of these iconic dishes. Our drive is to bring these classics to our guests.

We have made every effort to remain true to the heritage of Italian cooking. Our recipes are based, inspired or directly sourced from the very best restaurants in Italy. Some chefs in Italy have allowed us to work with them in their kitchens to learn the recipes firsthand.

Our journey to find the best pasta in Italy took us to Bologna, the epicenter of fresh pasta. We tried but could not make that pasta here. Then the answer hit us, and it was to go in a direction no one has gone before. We needed to make the pasta there and overnight it here, so we built a kitchen and hired a team of experts in Bologna.”

The Fresh Brothers story starts in Chicago with the Goldberg brothers, Adam and Scott. Scott opened the Miller Pizza Company in 1985, embracing Chicago-style pizza. With the goal of taking Chicago to the coast, brother Adam and his wife Debbie opened the first Fresh Brothers in SoCal in 2008. They combined their family recipes with fresh ingredients, putting a California twist on traditional pizza. This old-school pizza with upgraded nutrition was a hit, and Fresh Brothers only grew from there.

Fresh Brothers believes in feel-good pizza, and that means going beyond the pie.
