Santa Barbara is Southern California’s ocean air gateway to the Central Coast’s thriving wine country, and is home to some of the best produce and seafood on the planet. The city’s Tuesday night and Saturday morning farmers markets help to fuel plenty of menus and most chefs have strong ties to area farmers and fishermen. To add to the charm, the Santa Barbara City Council agreed to convert a stretch of State Street into a pedestrian promenade, complete with a bike bath and peaceful walking area. In all, Santa Barbara has all the fixings to satisfy for any trek from Los Angeles. Here now are 14 delicious restaurants to eat in Santa Barbara.
