Featured Spot of the Week: The Lark

Every Wednesday, we unveil our featured spot of the week to highlight local businesses and attractions here in Santa Barbara. This is to offer our support to our neighbors as well as provide tourism recommendations for our guests. This week we’re featuring a unique, well-loved Santa Barbara restaurant called The Lark.

The Lark is a popular spot for upscale, yet casual dining. Situated in a trendy neighborhood that’s actually called the Funk Zone, it is the hottest restaurant in Santa Barbara right now.

The food is served family-style so everyone can share, promoting a sense of community. It’s a great spot for families, groups of friends, or even business meetings. The interior is full of re-purposed vintage furniture and art, tying the past with the present in a unique atmosphere.

Their menu is full of diverse, daring dishes and they use only locally sourced ingredients that change seasonally. They’re known for their crispy, flavorful brussel sprouts as well as their expertly crafted deviled eggs, among other dishes. They also serve a number of both imported and local wines.

So head over to the Funk Zone and grab dinner at The Lark during your next visit to Santa Barbara. We’ll have a room ready for you here at Marina Beach Motel when you’re done!
