Are You Ready to Go Out to a Restaurant?

Now that the county has allowed restaurants to reopen for dine-in service, they’re doing just that—some only at their outdoor tables, others inside, too. Here’s a running list:


The Black Sheep / “We are pleased and excited to announce the Sheep will be open tonight while launching our new project Black Sheep Express and Wine Shop. You can check out the new menu at It’s counter service, to-go and delivery, and feel free to come and grab one of our socially distanced tables and enjoy some food laughs and some tasty wine. We are also taking reservations at Black Sheep dining room for a brand new four-course tasting menus, and we are limiting seating to 25 guests a night so we can provide the best dining experience possible. Make reservations by calling 805-965-1113.”

Once at capacity, tables will be available on a first-come basis. Food purchase required to buy alcohol per the state requirements.”
