Santa Barbara, California
$$

Santa Barbara’s Funk Zone cemented its stellar reputation with art and wine lovers, but the area lacked a serious foodie stop-off—until The Lark opened to rave reviews. Now crowds stream in after a day on the Urban Wine Trail to relax on the sunny patio and sample executive chef Jason Paluska’s seasonal, locally sourced menu. Plates like brussels sprouts with Medjool dates, Hope Ranch mussels in kaffir lime and lemongrass broth, and housemade gnocchi with lamb, fava beans, and snap peas are designed for sharing, while the drink menu focuses on hard-to-find Santa Barbara County and European wines, offered by the glass.
