At Relais de Paris, guests nestle in a cozy dining room modeled after a 19th-century French brasserie. With its rich woods and exposed bricks, the decor expertly balances simplicity with refinement. This approach to interior design mirrors the eatery's treatment of food, which chefs craft from all-natural meats and local organic produce. Dishes range from black mussels steamed in white wine to free-range chicken dressed in the house sauce, which is made from a secret recipe that, like a grandparent's phone, hasn't change a bit since 1959. Even though pours of red and white wine can complement any lunch or dinnertime bite, bartenders such as Shaun Belway?winner of the Santa Barbara Independent's second annual cocktail contest?also mix tasty libations including the French Quarter, a blend of bourbon, vermouth, and three types of bitters.

Bringing a little slice of colorful Brazilian tradition to California, Brasil Arts Cafe showcases the culture by way of food, dance, and an energetic ambiance. The food at the-cool rustic caf? is always super-fresh and made with organic ingredients that are transformed not just into authentic, Brazilian-style cuisine, but also healthy a?a? berry bowls, juices, and smoothies. Before filling up on traditional farofa or shredded chicken croquettes, visitors can work up an appetite at the dance studio, where groups can regularly be found practicing Capoeira for kids, adults, and adults who refuse to grow up.

Though Enterprise’s menu focuses solely on seafood, the offerings are still diverse. The fresh fish dishes include British Columbian salmon sweetened with a Coca-Cola barbecue glaze, Costa Rican mahi-mahi topped with toasted macadamia nuts, and basa swai paired with citrus jasmine rice and Asian slaw. Seafood also bulks up pastas and sandwiches, and the dessert roster presents molten chocolate cake and key-lime pie. Upon entering Enterprise, patrons may feel as though they’ve waded onto an immense sailboat. A blue-green marlin perches above the bar, and ship wheels and colorful buoys hang on the walls. Dock lights hook over each table, and an old-fashioned diving suit with a bronze helmet stands above the open grill, haughtily asking patrons how many leagues they can go under the sea.
