Santa Paula- for end of September
You are very lucky. One of the best restaurants in Ventura County is located in an industrial section of Santa Paula. It's called Hozy's. The menu is exceptional as is the wine list. If what you find on the wine list is not quite what you want, ask to be taken to the wine cellar-recognized by the Wine Spectator. The meats and fish are excellent and there are many choices in each category.The restaurant is located in the corner of a factory because it is owned by the owner of the factory who is a dyed in the wool foody. It is also open for lunch and breakfast, but for dinner, only Wed-Saturday.Reservations are advised.
