Little Dom’s Seafood in Carpinteria Has Soft-Opened

••• Longoria Wines in Lompoc is for sale. From the listing: “This is a rare opportunity to purchase a turn-key winery operation with production facility, tasting room, equipment, inventory, and brand. The fully functioning production facility is conducive to versatile uses and possesses pre-approved expansion opportunities and no known case production restrictions. Located nearby to the vaunted Sta. Rita Hills AVA, the location is ideal for its proximity to some of the area’s top vineyards, and its naturally cool climate enables low energy winemaking processes.”

••• New at Onus Donuts: appropriately old-school T-shirts (also available in white and cream).

••• Bibi Ji is now offering delivery, and you can order online for pickup.

••• The San Ysidro Ranch ran an ad in the Montecito Journal touting a “new restaurant” called the Carriage House, but it’s just a new dining area—outside, of course, adjacent to the Old Adobe event space—serving the same menu as at the Stonehouse and Plow & Angel.

••• Santa Barbara “plans to narrow two lanes of the 400 block of State Street, one block south of where the street closure starts. The lane closures will allow businesses on the 400 block to expand out into the street. […] Dayton added the city is also planning on closing part of W. Victoria Street near Bohnett Park to accommodate the public market and other restaurants on that block.” The Public Market is nowhere near Bohnett Park, so perhaps that’s supposed to be two separate closures…? —KEYT

••• Two pieces of Carpinteria food news from KEYT’s John Palminteri. First, Little Dom’s Seafood has soft-opened in the old Sly’s space. UPDATE: Apparently, it was just a friends-and-family opening, with public access still to come. From the News-Press: “While the restaurant’s website does not say when Little Dom’s Seafood will open to the public, the menu is already available.”

••• And a café/shop called Lost & Found has opened on Linden Avenue.
