Owner Crista Fookscrista-honeymoon-mv

Crista Fooks, professional food and drink nerd, brings her version of what she calls a true “neighborhood joint.” A place with interesting, edgy, and delicious modern food, wine & cocktails that you can even bring the kids to. (The patio is also dog-friendly.) “No snobs allowed” is Fook’s policy.

The former food editor and Four Season’s Santa Barbara catering manager, is turning people’s heads with an eclectic restaurant that offers flavor, style and a lot of whimsy with delicious, thoughtfully prepared food and drinks.

The restaurant is named after her daughter, which is fitting because Fooks says the ingredients she uses must be the ones she serves to her own family—and now yours.
