I have something to share with you.
Every February I go to Santa Barbara for work. And as much as I love the scenery, I also love the restaurants. This trip I only had a couple of options to dine out and treated myself to two super fun evenings.
There was a group of over 20 and reservations were going to be super hard to find for a super casual spot. So we got lucky at Eureka Burger with a long table and a side booth. Yes, they have a bar and quite a few options for dinner – tacos, salads and of course burgers. I tried the Napa Burger which was recommended by a colleague. Roasted Roma tomato, pesto aioli, Havarti, pancetta and arugla all topped my burger serverd with handcut fries. Pretty good! The place so packed so I think our server was a bit overwhelmed(or do I say frustrated) when she would not split the bill at the end of the night even though we asked if she could when we sat down. Good spot for a smaller group.
The Black Sheep
I love when I walk into a restaurant and I get a great feeling. I was there with 4 other ladies and I knew we were going to have a fun night. It all started with a very sassy server when he added in some hand and hip action while reviewing the specials of the night. The smiles and laughter continued. We started by sharing some appetizers – the sweetbreads, the bone marrow crostini and the brussel sprouts. I then ordered the duck special for dinner – Duck confit with pork belly, egg noodles, Carmelized fish sauce and citrus infused cabbage. WOW…delicious! I guess we were such a fun table that they also brought us out some desserts to try – rice pudding and panna cotta!
Go Here – it is great!
