THELARKMENUPORKCHICKENDESSERTMENUICECREAMSANDWICHCHOCOLATETook a road trip up the coast to Santa Barbara yesterday and had such a great time with the family. We topped off the day with a wonderful dinner at The Lark.

Here are Five reason why I love this trending restaurant:

Number One- The executive chef, Jason Paluska is from Tomball, Texas.

Number Two- If you look closely on the menu (botton right) it says “Show the Lark Kitchen some Love, buy them a 6-pack of Shiner Bock Beer” Hello, How cool is that! Texas beer is the BEST beer.

Number Three- Instead of serving bread on your table they serve seasoned popcorn!

Number Four- Everything on the menu is meant to be shared.

Number Five- Gluten free friendly!

A few of our favorite Dishes/Desserts were:

*LANE FARMS ORGANIC LETTUCES
dungeness crab, avocado vinaigrette, roasted pistachio, meyer lemon, chervil

*CAST IRON ROASTED BROCCOLINI
black garlic, toasted walnuts, cucumber yogurt
