 santa barbara County has its own unique food traditions—from santa Maria barbecue to santa barbara spot prawns and the world-class local wines that
 accompany them—so we’d like to help you find some of the area restaurants that create the distinctively santa barbara dining experience. restaurants are
 chosen for this dining guide because of their emphasis on using local, seasonal ingredients in their menus and their commitment to real food.
