Dinner was at the communal table, which I enjoyed. I don’t know why but I love eating at a large table with strangers and bumping elbows. We weren’t that close to people here, but usually in Los Angeles, communal tables require touching elbows. 🙂

The lamb shank was amazing and I had to start with that. That’s probably the most memorable item from the restaurant. Well, that and the pimento. The place was crowded and it was a LONG wait for a table. Luckily we found an area to seat four and we went in. Many bottles of wine later, we walked back to our hotel and enjoyed a good night’s rest. I can say, some were feeling a bit hungover the next day. I was not one of them. 😛







 Two day trip to Santa Barbara for a project we were retained on. 🙂 We spent one night in the little cute town and enjoyed some appetizers and wine before dinner. It was walking distance from our hotel so it was easy.

We found a little corner with sofas and big chairs at the establishment. The place had high ceilings and walls of wine, with amazing service.

The charcuterie plate was delicious and the rose was even better. I think I’ll need to come back to this place with my husband. 🙂



I haven’t been to Santa Barbara since before my first marriage. That’s right after high school! We visited the town for work and we stopped by this cute public market and now I’m thinking about wanting to take a road trip down there to spend the weekend drinking wine!

I saw a store with wine bottles on three sides of the glass wall from floor to ceiling and I wanted to die! I can’t wait to visit one day!
