“From A to V” (abalone to vino):
a taste of local food and wine
In keeping with the spirit of epicure.sb, Santa Barbara’s 4th annual month-long culinary extravaganza, Bella Vista is dishing up a savory five-course wine dinner menu for just $75 per person during the entire month of October. The lineup, developed by executive chef Alessandro Cartumini, is a locavore’s dream, with a parade of delectable dishes drawing from the region’s local bounty – from fresh seafood and all natural free-range beef to flavorful seasonal produce and artisanal foods.
