Third Window Brewing Co. Is Expanding

••• N. asked for an update on Tamar, the Middle Eastern pop-up at Third Window Brewing Co., which went on hiatus a month ago. “I’m waiting on some permitting to process to reopens” said chef/owner Logan Jones. “I don’t have an exact date yet but we will be back up and running at Third Window before summer.” Above: a special from a couple of months ago—”Sujuk hummus, sautéed beef sausage, lemon, extra virgin, parsley.”

••• Related, but not clear how much: Third Window is expanding into the former Simple Feast space at 410 E. Haley. “For the time being, all we can say is that we’re excited to utilize the space to improve experiences for our customers, food partners and team.”

••• “Restaurants will have to pay a $2-per-square-foot fee for outdoor dining space, the Santa Barbara City Council decided Tuesday, in a surprising reversal from its stance in January. Originally, the council considered a range of $3 to $10 per square foot for space, with most business owners paying about $5.” —Noozhawk

••• More on Goodland Waffles & Melts, now open at Mosaic Locale. —Noozhawk

••• Another State Street casualty: The Creamistry ice cream shop between Carrillo and Canon Perdido has closed. It opened in 2018.

••• Rori’s Artisanal Creamery, meanwhile, “is gearing up for a major expansion with three new locations set to open in the coming months [in] Ventura, Arroyo Grande and Los Angeles.” —Santa Barbara News-Press

••• St. Bibiana has started offering pizza by the slice.

••• Pizza Online in Goleta has closed. —Restaurant Guy

••• Deux Bakery is now selling sandwiches—ham, turkey, or roast beef.

The Three Monkeys banh mi are legit! So many times when you get banh mi at a place that is….let’s call it up-market? – the bread is some French baguette or the like – wayyyyyy too bready. Hats off to them for both the excellent fillings (I tried the pork) and the spot on bread. Pricey, but worth it.

Oh pleaseeee let the Simple Feast space become a permanent Tamar restaurant! I cannot deal with them only serving weekday lunches anymore


St Bib has been offering slices for quite some time. now. I’m worried Three Monkeys might have the same fate as so many in that space. The food is SO good but every time I’ve been, there was no line.
