Five friends have teamed up to open the Arlington Tavern restaurant on Victoria Street in downtown Santa Barbara. Two of the owners are former workers at a past restaurant on the site.Owner and Chef Ron True says when it comes to the tavern concept, “we have Cold Spring Tavern of course, but we didn’t have a tavern downtown. The idea of farm fresh has been my inspiration my entire career. It’s where I learned from Zuni’s Caf, from Union Caf in Gramercy everything is sourced from the farm as fresh as possible and that’s essentially what I am trying to do here.”True says he is buying local produce and fresh fish daily for his menu.The restaurant has a large dining area, and a quaint bar design that will offer a lighter menu. Many local wines and beers will be offered.Arlington Tavern is in the theater district not far from the Arlington and Granada Theaters.
