The Nugget - The Nugget: The three of us had gathered to write the obituary of a local legend, The Nugget, tucked on the main drag of Summerland. Rumor has it that this grand old dame of greasy spoons is soon to change ownership after many years, and the locals are nervous. 5979 add

Sharkeez - Sharkeez: Ah, yes, the scent is familiar. Vodka and Red Bull, with just a hint of sweat and salsa. The olfactory overload is intense upon entering Sharkeez, but is secondary only to the visual onslaught that is all at once, This Old House and the Circuit City Labor Day Sale. My old pal Dave, known locally as The Armadillo, was reminded of that frat house you went to in the early weeks of your freshman year and said, Dude, I am totally pledging this place ... 5046 add

The Doghouse - The Doghouse: The Doghouse occupies a little corner of Milpas that previously housed a Superfund site that doubled as a walkup burrito stand. The story goes something like this,three guys from the Bronx decide to pack up and leave the city and relocate to Santa Barbara. They look around, see a dozen smoothie shops, forty taco shops and enough coffee houses to power a small city. Smack dab in the middle of nuts and twigs healthy Southern California these chaps decide to go into the hot dog business. 5299 add

Red's - Red's: The glue of the joint is owner Dana Walters. A ceramic artist who decided that a coffee shop is a much more orthodox way to earn a buck, she makes the place hum. If the elevation of your coffee dips below a fathom she is there to replenish. 6512 add
Articles from Daily Newsletter on Jun 16, 2005 reads comments
Dutch Garden Restaurant - Dutch Garden Restaurant: There is something to be said for a restaurant that puts more emphasis on the beer list than the actual food menu. I encounter this on my third attempt to experience the Dutch Garden Restaurant on upper State Street, which apparently uses the Byzentine calendar to set the hours of operation. Mondays and Tuesdays are definitely a no go. Try a Wednesday like I did and you should be OK. The rest of the week is apparently at the discretion of management. 8736 add

Shoreline Café - Shoreline Café: The Actress is concerned. Her boyfriend of over a year has recently taken up with a 22 year old Swedish photographer while they were experimenting with a brief trial breakup. She has us enraptured with this tale of infidelity, and movement at the table occurs only when someone needs to apply guacamole to a slightly stale tortilla chip. 5782 add

Moby Dick - Moby Dick: Call me Ishmael. Or, just call me lazy. I figured there couldn’t be an easier target in the Santa Barbara restaurant scene for an acerbic lunch critic than Moby Dick. On several levels, the name alone can make a third grader snicker and a grad student ashen. It seemed almost too easy. 6742 add
Articles from Daily Newsletter on May 18, 2005 reads comments
Boca de Rio - Boca de Rio: There is a television suspended above my head on a platform loosely engineered with plywood and drywall screws. The mono speaker screeches at full volume with the delight of a Mexican soap opera. Across the table from me is a man known as “The Coyote.” He has recently been electrocuted, and it shows. He orders a Pacifico and stares silently at the drama, nibbling lightly on a tortilla chip. 5437 add

Pascucci Ristorante - Pascucci Ristorante: My grandmother always told me that if you want to know a woman, see if her father drives a soft-top; if you want to know a restaurant, see if the eggplant still has the skin on it. Armed with this morsel of wisdom, we entered the holy grail of The Santa Barbara Business Lunch - Pascucci. A quick scan revealed two members of our city council eating at different tables (councilmen always travel single-file, to hide their numbers), a real estate tycoon, a retail diva, and your requisite tables of young men in blue shirts and khakis either plotting the take-over of the world or on break from the Men’s Warehouse. 5739 add

Brown Pelican - Brown Pelican: There’s something discerning in the knowledge that this restaurant sits only a few hundred yards from the county’s second largest source of raw fecal bacteria, Arroyo Burro Creek. The first-place honor goes to East Beach at Mission Creek where, with similar wisdom, there are no less than four restaurants lining the shores of what the non-profit Heal The Bay describes as water steeped in contamination from the intestinal tracts of humans and other animals. 5769 add

Lunch With Salmon - Lunch With Salmon: I remember being a waiter. The horror that is any commercial kitchen, be it the Four Seasons or a neighborhood Italian eatery. The later was were I spent most of my days. Starched white shirt working on its third straight night without a laundering. Two crumpled cigarettes in the back pocket for when there was a lull in the crowd. Employing the “Three Second Rule” when a veal cutlet slid off the plate and onto the peeling linoleum. 5010 add

Blue Collar Bistro - Blue Collar Bistro: I remember the summer that Uncle Carl lost his hand. It was 1985 or so, and propane was really starting to come onto the scene. Carl didn’t couple-up the fitting quite right and, while he fumbled with a box of strike-anywhere matches, a reservoir of highly-flammable liquefied petroleum gas formed under the carriage of the barbeque and made for one hell of an ignition source. Even though his old Pontiac and left flipper took the brunt of the explosion, he never stopped being The Guy Who Works the Grill. In fact, it assured his lock on this highly coveted position, but it was always Kingsford briquettes after that. 5579 add

Sushi Teri - Sushi Teri: A bootleg Steely Dan album from Japan seemed like the appropriate soundtrack for my drive over to the Sushi Teri. A “rockstar” parking place opened up right out on Bath Street and I swung the Cadillac into position. I had never been here in the daylight, but the little swinging lanterns brought back the memory of the last time. Her name was Andrea. 1997. She let go of The Salmon that night. My first time being deposited by the opposite sex since high school. Andrea was a singer, on her way to the top. She had yoga, I had beer. She had cash, and I had checks. Like a candle that burns at both ends, it didn’t last the night, but for a while it did cast a brilliant light. 6015 add

Cantwell's Market - Cantwell's Market: “We’re not gonna pay for the beer,” said the manager. “Or the fabric softener. Or the firewood. Just the sandwiches.” With that went my hopes of using the twenty dollar Edhat per diem to stock the pantry for the coming week. It did, however, highlight the benefits of dining at this glorified convenience store – one stop shopping during your lunch break. 6394 add

Derf's - Derf's: Derf’s has always been a drinking place for me, as I always had the sneaking suspicion that food borne illness was just a bite away, when consumed without the sterilizing properties of alcohol. Sometimes I even worry about the ale, as it is typically served at ambient temperature. 6066 add

Via Maestra 42 - Via Maestra 42: Via Maestra 42 is actually the address of the owner’s family home in Italy. What a good boy, what a sensitive boy, and if you meet him you would agree. 7728 add

Max's - Max's: Max’s is a coffee shop with some attractive items described on the menu, but still serves coffee shop food in a coffee shop atmosphere. The ambiance for me was strictly, “lunch at the local retirement home”. 6079 add

Barcliff & Bair - Barcliff & Bair: Barcliff and Bair is boring, generic, impersonal and easily forgettable. And besides all of that, it is expensive. A turkey sandwich is 11 dollars, and a bad soup and half a sandwich is 9. 7824 add

The Bay Café - The Bay Café: The patio was as beautiful as ever, with climbing vines and beautiful plants and the sun breaking through the wooden trellis - a feast to our senses. Ay, Santa Barbara, como te quiero. 7421 add

Los Arroyos - Los Arroyos: When our waitress came by to pick up our empty dishes and ask us how we enjoyed it, I playfully said to her in Spanish that the food was almost as exquisite as our waitress. I wasn’t sure if she blushed, but I am sure that she tilted the plate of fish tacos, and I ended up going home with my cream colored slacks splattered with thousand island pink dressing. 6826 add

Joe's - Joe's: By the time we asked for our check the place was packed - mostly locals and some business people from the Old Guard of Santa Barbara. I guess no matter how sophisticated your palate is, you still have to visit Joe’s and make sure it is still there with you, like an old friend or the image of that special lover you just cannot forget. 5848 add

Tuttini - Tuttini: A man with gray temples, a light blue buttoned-down shirt and wing tips ran in and consumed a tuna sandwich in exactly 29 seconds. What’s the rush, Brother? We are all going in the same direction - relax and have a bread pudding! Maybe he was starting his own Kobayashi-like tuna fish salad competition. 6172 add

Chase - Chase: If you believe in the separation of church and food, this place is not for you. There is no way you can avoid seeing the cross that hangs on the front wall; it is huge and a little intimidating. 5863 add

Harry's - Harry's: I took a large fry and stuck it the middle of the dead chicken pot pie. It stood there firmly at attention, so I proceeded to put another smaller French fry across the center of the larger one. A little squeeze and, voila! My dear oatmeal, or shall I say chicken pot pie, R.I.P. 6564 add

Bogart's - Bogart's: Our waitress, an Irish firecracker full of charm, good nature and humor, guided us through the menu with conviction and after the usual recommendations we proceeded to order just the opposite. 5906 add

The Brewhouse - The Brewhouse: The smell of Pine Sol before lunch. It tantalizes your smelling senses and stimulates your salivary glands, and as a consequence your appetite becomes ravenous. 5916 add

Tupelo Junction - Tupelo Junction: The collard greens were an absolute triumph all by their lonesome, but the macaronis were dry and tasteless. One wonders how they can be so tasteless with the Gouda and cheddar cheeses all over them, but tasteless they were - to the point of seeking help from a touch of salt. 6084 add

La Super-Rica - La Super-Rica: This week Louie and Ed went to La Super-Rica. Everyone was happy to be eating there. Louie was so happy he threw his dirty fork on Ed’s plate. 8868 add

Louie’s (at the Upham) - Louie’s (at the Upham): As for the penne dish, it had very little penne and very little spinach, but the olives, feta and tomatoes were plentiful - especially the tomatoes, which by shear abundance, took over the entire plate. 5971 add

Pharmacy Coffee Shop - Pharmacy Coffee Shop: It was a wonderful day, but you would miss out on the feeling the dining room has to offer; the lovely Formica tables, the linoleum floors, the wall heater, the color of which matches the acoustic ceiling. Absolute perfect harmony reigns in the place. 8994 2

Daily Grind - Daily Grind: Louie had to cancel lunch this week. He had some personal business that held a higher priority than sharing yet another meal with his friend Ed. This week there will be no waitress encounters, no overheard cell phone conversations, and no pasta with the life drained out of it. Instead, I went next door to the Daily Grind to get a turkey sandwich and a smoothie. 6816 add

the Abdis - the Abdis: The place when we arrived was empty, 12 midday, but it got a little busy after that; still with one waitress and a cook; their expectations were clearly not very optimistic. 6200 add

the Cava - the Cava: We ordered like we had just won the lottery, or at least a Pick Six at the racetrack. We ordered Halibut with a potato crust and two soft chicken tacos with rice and beans. That’s right, you’d better win something at the track, because the tacos are 13.00 bucks, and the halibut is 17.50. That’s for lunch, buddy! At dinner, prices go up. 6739 add

the Ca'  Dario - the Ca'  Dario: As I ordered our check, I discovered to my amazement that my neighbor had indeed cleaned his salmon plate in its totality. It was also at this time that ‘Annette’ got up to go to the restroom. Standing, she revealed a mini skirt no wider than my pappardelle. As she walked away, the entire restaurant lost all mobility and sound. 6488 add

Bitterman's Deli - Bitterman's Deli: The chicken broth wasn’t bad, but the matzo ball was more like a bocce ball, perfectly round and a little hard. The turkey was of the super market variety, but the sandwich with avocado, tomatoes, sprouts and onions was okay. The coleslaw was forgettable. Best of the whole thing was the pickle jar and the uninterrupted Seinfeld shows on the TV. 7801 add

Brigitte's - Brigitte's: We got to meet a whole bunch of people at Brigitte's, all of them staff. A lady first greeted us and gave us our menus. Then another lady brought the water and bread. Somebody else asked us if we were ready to order, smiled and left. A couple of minutes later somebody totally different took our order. You want diversification in your service, go to Brigitte’s, it’s a little confusing but has a certain ballet quality to it. 5808 add

Sojourner Café - Sojourner Café: As soon as we sat down we knew something out of the ordinary was going on. For no reason we could possibly think of, a waitress and the hostess immediately ran behind a partition and began staring at us like we were members of Al Qaeda. There was hate and suspicion in those looks, and there were bad vibes that were definitely directed at us. To tell you the truth, it was freaky. 6185 add

Brophy Brothers - Brophy Brothers: I would have been happy even if my lunch consisted of just a Snickers bar. The place in itself is charming, with old black and white pictures of fishing past, a bar in the center of the eating area was the meeting place of several fisherman, having a brew and a good time as well. There are two outside eating areas; we were very lucky to get a table with a great view of the ocean and the hills as well. 7356 add

Palazzio - Palazzio: Two of the dishes tasted exactly the same, even though they were completely different on the menu. When you put a gallon of cream and a half-gallon of oil on some ingredients, you drain the life out of them; you can call them anything you want. At the end, it’s just gook. 5973 add

Fresco - Fresco: The salads are wonderful, and the house dressing is probably one of the best in town. Prices are very reasonable and if you are not too gastronomically pretentious you can have a slice of pizza or a calzone with a giant salad for $6.50. Their dishes are very generous and most of the time a half a salad should be more than enough. One curious tidbit, the ratio was approximately 5 women to every one man, including Ed and me in the male category. Where are the guys? 5904 add

The Good Earth - The Good Earth: The Good Earth is a good place to go when you just don’t care – when you’ve got to eat something, but don’t care what it is. You know exactly what you’re going to get, and that eliminates the trouble of choosing from the menu. 6004 add

La Playa Azul - La Playa Azul: The tostada was generic and with a total lack of imagination in its presentation. Just pile everything up and good luck. The enchiladas were plain and simply bad. The filling almost all dark chicken meat and when we opened it up, it was staring at us. It was alive. That’s no good. The tortilla that surrounded this concoction had seen its better days, it was soggy and falling apart. 6195 add

Figaro - Figaro: It was a great lunch with impeccable service and great views. Prices are moderate, $7.95 for either dish. The coffee could have had used a little more punch, but hey, another good find. We will be back. Hate to admit, but we will. 5753 add

Pascucci's - Pascucci's: The most striking feature on the plate is a pinkish leaf of kale; I'm guessing it's for decoration. It is enormous and takes up a third of the plate. But that's okay, because the halibut is about the size of an anchovy; the penne is cold and the sauce covering it is inedible. Ed doesn't do that much better with his selection; the pasta is totally overcooked and cold; as for Alfredo, well, he must be on break because he isn't on the pasta. 7311 add

Santa Barbara Brewing - Santa Barbara Brewing: Well, it didn't take long for Emilee, our waitress, to make her angelical entrance into our lives.
