Anybody who’s spent more than a boozy Saturday in Santa Barbara knows about Los Agaves, a well-established Mexican restaurant. Santo Mezcal is their more upscale place serving modern Mexican food like massive plates of ceviche (get the halibut and ahi tuna), shrimp covered in creamy mezcal sauce, and an octopus in adobo dish you’ll think about late at night. Also important: the mezcal cocktails are very good.
