Drawing inspiration from the coastal regions of the Mediterranean Sea, The Lark’s food is beautifully plated, featuring bold flavors designed to delight the senses while staying rooted in the climate, geography and inspiration of Santa Barbara, the American Riviera.
ABOUT PEARL SOCIAL:
Pearl Social is a romantic, intimate cocktail bar, social destination and live music venue where people come to celebrate life while enjoying the music and ambiance of this dynamic new space. Pearl Social is the ideal place to grab a hand-crafted artisanal cocktail before or after dinner at one of the Funk Zone’s most popular restaurants – The Lark or Loquita. Pearl Social’s name gives a nod to the celebrated first lady of Santa Barbara, Pearl Chase, a local activist who worked tirelessly on the historic preservation and beautification of the popular coastal city. Pearl Chase was an intelligent and courageous woman who deeply loved her adopted hometown of Santa Barbara and spent her life committed to bettering it.
Loquita, an endearing Spanish colloquial term for a wild and fun-loving young girl, is a love letter to the Spanish origins and history of Santa Barbara. The menu presents a variety of authentic Spanish pintxos, tapas, paella, charcuterie and cheeses; seafood and meat dishes sourced from Santa Barbara’s ranchers, farmers, and fishers.
ABOUT LA PALOMA CAFÉ:
La Paloma is an approachable neighborhood restaurant, patio and watering hole, picking up just where it left off. La Paloma Cafe is a thoughtfully crafted California barbecue restaurant where flavors reflect the past and present of our local community. Paying tribute to the age of the vaquero, La Paloma uses indigenous ingredients prepared with Mexican and Spanish influences and cooked over California live oak.
