There’s some good foodie news, and some bad foodie news.
The bad news is a couple well loved restaurants closed their doors these past couple weeks. We said farewell to Sojourner Cafe and Arch Rock Fish. You’ll be missed.
But, the good news is some new ones are opening up, and others are gaining well-deserved notoriety.
To fill us in on it all, Matt Kettmann, editor at the Santa Barbara Independent and Wine Enthusiast stopped by.
A “taste” of the Independent’s 2015 Foodie Award recipients:
The Cook’s Cook Award: Julienne’s Justin West and Wildwood Kitchen
Putting the “To” in Farm-to-Table Award: Harvest Santa Barbara
Lifetime Achievement Award: Paradise Cafe
