  • Spencer Makenzie's Fish Co.
    Creating Spencer Makenzie's Fish Company was a labor of love for John and Jennifer Karayan, who spent 20 years perfecting their eclectic Californian recipes before sharing them with the public. Named after the couple's 5-year-old son and 3-year-old daughter, the business began as a concession trailer at festivals and fairgrounds, presenting healthful alternatives to traditional fast-food options without sacrificing speedy service. The concept took off, and the trailer eventually blossomed into a permanent location a couple of blocks from the shore. Although the chefs use only sashimi-grade fish and make everything from clam chowder to sauces and salsas in-house, they don't stray far from the restaurant's unpretentious fairground roots. The Ventura County Reporter recognized the company's dual commitment to quality and convenience in 2011, honoring the eatery with awards for Best Fish Taco and Best Cheap Eats. The same thoughtfulness with which John and Jennifer designed the healthful and flavorful menu led them to embrace a variety of environmentally friendly practices. In addition to donating their used trans-fat-free cooking oil to biodiesel refineries, they exclusively stock the restaurant with biodegradable plates, utensils, and employees. Chalkboards of handwritten specials, an acoustic soundtrack by artists such as Jack Johnson and Bob Marley, and 36-inch flat-screen televisions playing skateboarding, surfing, and sporting events add to Spencer Makenzie's Fish Company's casual, laid-back ambiance. At the same time, photographs of local beaches line the walls and serve as a gentle reminder of the inspiration behind the ocean-fresh menu.

  • The Ranch House
    John Lennon. Paul Newman. Barbra Streisand. Although it's tucked away in the Ojai Valley, The Ranch House?voted one of OpenTable's most romantic restaurants in America?is no stranger to notable guests. The latest arrivals are also the restaurant's new owners: Italian artist Maria Angela Perna and hotelier Steve Edelson carry on the legacy of legendary founder Alan Hooker. They brought with them Executive Chef Sean Kingsbury, who oversees a menu of farm-to-table American cuisine created without the culinary crutches of freezers, fryers, or microwave ovens. Lauded on an episode of Food Network?s The Best Thing I Ever Ate, the seasonal cuisine changes along with the calendar. Recent menus included a braised lamb shank, Pacific jumbo scallops in a limoncello beurre blanc sauce, and a gourmet take on the timeless chicken cordon bleu. To complement those flavors, the restaurant offers a Wine Spectator award-winning wine list with approximately 650 selections. After their meal, guests can tour the rest of The Ranch House grounds, working off the meal as they stroll through the herb garden and bakery.

  • The Taj Cafe Ventura
    The Taj Caf??s tandoor cooks many of the dishes on the menu. Chefs marinate chicken and skewer pieces of fish before tossing them into the traditional clay oven with classic Indian-style breads. Saut?ed spinach wraps around housemade cheese cubes in the vegetarian-friendly saag paneer, and basmati rice pairs with seasoned lamb in the lamb biryani. Golden-orange walls blanket the caf?, reminiscent of the curry powder sprinkled into dishes and patrons' mouths.

  • Azu
    With an eclectic menu that includes tapas, paninis, entrees, and fresh, homemade gelato, this Spanish/Mediterranean establishment keeps taste buds aflutter with pan-cultural palate pulchritude. Chef Laurel Moore selects the finest-quality meats and produce from Ojai farms and ranches and even grows some of her own fruits and veggies in the Azu garden. Lunch selections include lighter options such as the jamon serrano and manchego panini (Spanish ham, manchego cheese, drizzled with olive oil on wheat ciabatta, $8) and the roasted beet salad (duo of beets, ricotta salata, fried chickpeas, Moroccan olives, and sherry vinaigrette, $13). Dinner comes tailored to either your inner Arnold Schwarzenegger or Danny DeVito, with larger entrees including the oven-roasted wild Alaskan salmon (marinated in Moroccan spices, served with roasted butternut squash and vegetable and dried fruit Israeli couscous, $25), and small tapas such as the lamb kabobs (ground lamb and Moroccan spices served with cucumber tzatziki, $11) and stuffed dates (organic dates stuffed with chorizo and wrapped in bacon, $9). Wines from the Mediterranean region (25 varieties offered by the glass) or house cocktails such as the Spanish martini (Belvedere, Chambord, pineapple juice and a float of Cava, $14) fulfill aqua vitae appetency, while seasonal homemade gelato, such as the mango chili lime, is a great finish to the feast or an suitable take-home face moisturizer. Reservations are recommended, so go online to reserve a table.

  • Pete's Breakfast House
    Pete's Breakfast House flips cakes, cracks eggs, and stirs up other farm-fresh ingredients for made-to-order breakfast and lunchtime eats. An extensive menu of daybreak chow pampers palates of off-duty owls and midday risers alike. Breakfast plates act as garage-door openers for the eyelids with options like the Biscuit Plate, on which eggs, bacon, sausage, and biscuits skinny dip in a slather of homemade gravy ($7.75). Fodder aficionados marvel at the use of culinary envelopes in the pesto omelet, which tucks spinach, mushrooms, pesto, parmesan, and jack cheese in a bed of eggs for a postrooster nap ($8.95). The frittata kicks the covers off fresh veggies and cheese to be served open-faced ($9.25).

  • Busy Bee Cafe
    Busy Bee Cafe engenders memories of poodle skirts and soda shops with an evocative mix of '50s d?cor and classic American fare. Loaded skins kick off the nostalgic menu with a selfless gesture, as potatoes shed their outer layer to be piled with jack and cheddar cheese, bacon bits, and dipping sauce ($5.99). Busy Bee Cafe's Reuben sandwich is a crowd favorite, with a mouthwatering stockpile of corned beef or pastrami, garnished with heaps of sauerkraut, coleslaw, potato salad and cheese, and doused in tangy thousand island dressing ($9.95). A Busy Bee Cafe's specialty, the chicken fried steak dons a contradictory moniker in a futile attempt to throw voracious diners off their mission to devour its mix of grilled and battered beef, topped in homemade country gravy ($12.99 for dinner). Classic ice-cream sodas deliver a velvety blow that knocks palates back to the olden days of lunch counters and Eisenhower Halloween costumes ($4.45).
