Santa Barbara and the Central Coast Restaurants


The Hungry Cat

The Hungry Cat Review

The hip Santa Barbara sibling of a famed Hollywood eatery, run by chefs David Lentz and his wife, Suzanne Goin, dishes up savory seafood in a small but lively nook in the downtown arts district. Feast on sea urchin, addictive peel-and-eat shrimp, and creative cocktails made from farmers' market fruits and veggies. A busy nightspot on weekends, the Cat also awakens for a popular brunch on Sunday. Night or day, come early or be prepared for a wait.
