Two Stearns Wharf Restaurants Are for Sale

••• Both Bree’osh locations are now contenders in BLT season.

••• Simple Feast, which delivers plant-based meal kits in L.A., has long planned to expand to Santa Barbara, and the move appears to be imminent. The Mill just announced that the company is one of its tenants; Simple Feast will use the former Wildwood Kitchen space (410 E. Haley) for pop-up dinners and other events.

••• The longtime owner of the Harbor Restaurant and Longboard’s Grill on Stearns Wharf is selling the restaurants, and the price is now $1.75 million. From the listing: “Dual-concept business: Harbor Restaurant on main level includes banquet room for 50± people. Longboard’s Grill is upstairs fish ‘n’ chips/burger spot with expansive deck and full bar. 457 seats total, with an ocean view from every table. Private valet parking lot adjacent to the building, generous kitchen, type 47, 58, 77 liquor licenses included. Further details available with executed NDA. Offering is for the business, licenses, and equipment only.”

••• While I was Googling around to factcheck that last item, I came across a listing for the building at 4631 Carpinteria Avenue, home to Clementine’s. The listing says the 39-year-old restaurants lease is month-to-month, and the restaurant owners told the Coastal View News that they’d like to stay, and if not, they’ll look elsewhere: “And if there were new owners who had new plans for the restaurant space? [Lloyd] McLenithan admits that would be a hurdle but said he is confident Clementine’s would be able to find a new home.”

••• Chef Peter Cham has left Finch & Fork for Roblar Winery in Santa Ynez.

••• “Saba Tewolde, who’s been sharing her Ethiopian cuisine with us for years [is] hosting a pop-up dinner on June 20 at Embermill to benefit the strife-ravaged Tigray region, which is her homeland, and then starting to serve lunch regularly at the Caribbean restaurant on State Street.” —Independent

••• “Tap Thai restaurant is adding a second location at 7060 Hollister Avenue Ste. D-6 in Goleta (next to Smart & Final).” —Restaurant Guy

••• A new twist on the home-bakery boom: The Happy Little Loaf makes pizza dough, bread dough, and cookie dough for you to bake at home. (Below: sweet rolls.) Order by Thursday at 5 p.m. for weekend delivery.
