Restaurant Visit: The Hungry Cat in Santa Barbara

Janet Hall December 16, 2009

One of our favorite restaurants anywhere is The Hungry Cat in Santa Barbara (it's also a favorite of It's Complicated director Nancy Meyers). Designed by LA firm Johnston Marklee, the interior features a gleaming copper-clad bar and a sweeping sofit of gray-stained mahogany. We love the simple, festive table settings owner Suzanne Goin uses for the restaurant crabfests: Goin covers her tables with newspaper and lays them with crab mallets and simple tableware. Recreate the look at home with the following items.

Above: Hand-made locally in the Chesapeake Bay area, Wooden Crab Mallets from Chesapeake Traditions are $14.25 for a dozen.You can also source Seven-Inch Wooden Crab Mallets individually ($0.89 each) at the Web Restaurant Store.

Above: Stock up on White Hotel Napkins; $32 for pack of twelve at Williams-Sonoma.

Above: For a big gathering, consider CB2's Party Forks , Party Knives, and Party Spoons that are affordable enough to bypass the waste-creating plastic utensils; sold in sets of six for $9.95 (forks and spoons) and $10.95 (knives).

Above: PB Classic Barware is made in the Netherlands from soda-lime glass; set of six for $11 from Pottery Barn.
