Bar Le Côte
Seafood-focused spot Bar Le Côte, the second restaurant from the crew behind Bell's, was one of the most highly anticipated restaurants to open in the Santa Ynez Valley, probably ever. Fortunately BLC delivers on the hype. You’ll eat dishes like scallop crudo with pickled black pearl mushrooms and vegetarian paella, sip local orange wine, and Google whether there are any houses available within walking distance. Bar Le Côte is an ideal dinner spot after a dreamy day of wine tasting, but if you can’t score a reservation, pop in during lunch service when there’s usually an open table.
