Restaurant Visit: The Hungry Cat in Santa Barbara

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.
