••• Edible Santa Barbara noticed a help-wanted ad for the Daisy, the State Street (Victoria/Anapamu) restaurant that has been closed since the pandemic started—and which many of us feared would never reopen. The owners subsequently confirmed the news and said they’re shooting for the end of the month.
••• Kevin Moore Architect posted that final design board approval has been granted for the revamp of the strip mall at 3441 State Street (Las Positas/S. Ontare) in San Roque, where Union Bank and BYOB Home Brewing Supply are among the current tenants (and where La Rumba Bar & Grill used to be). Evidently, we can expect a “new multi-tenant space in the works featuring coffee, beer/wine and full kitchen”—in other words, along the lines of Kim’s Service Dept. and Waterline, both of which the firm also worked on.
••• Restaurant Guy reports that the former Little Door space at 129 E. Anapamu will become the Courthouse Tavern, from “Warren Butler who is also the Managing Partner at Chase Restaurant & Lounge. Courthouse Tavern will be serving American cuisine for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and will have Happy Hour all day with drink specials and small plates.” Was I the only one hoping for something more sophisticated for such a pretty building? The tentative opening date is June 15.
