I stumbled upon this place while walking on state street and was looking for a place to eat. This place looked very welcoming. When we entered through the doors, we were immediately greeted by the server. The service here was awesome and the servers were very friendly. The bread here is soooo amazing! Best bread I've had in awhile. Wish I could find the bread here in LA. Can someone tell me where they get their bread from?! I got the mussels and my partner got the shrimp. full review
Great restaurant just off State. The chef/owner used to work for the Lark. Middle Child reminds me of Bossie's, where the chef uses good techniques and fresh ingredients to make simple unpretentious dishes. I am confident that they have the best fried chicken entree in Santa Barbara. Flavorful and juicy chicken thighs in a perfectly crispy coating on top of creamy coconut grits, served with a little ramekin of sweet and spicy dipping sauce. I especially love the skin on full review
I spent the day doing a bit of wine tasting in SB, and was looking for a bite before making the trek back home. Good reviews, proximity, and a decent price point led me here. I came in at 3:45 on a Sunday (he place was pretty empty) so I waited it out for the happy hour deals at 4:00. Saved a couple of bucks on a beer and $5 on a wild mushroom pie. The pizza was pretty large and excellent. I am not a huge fan of the crust around the edge, but you could eat right up to full review
