Santa Paula- for end of September
We will be visiting Santa Paula, CA the last week in September. We would appreciate any recommendations for having a great dinner in that area. Thank you for the help.
Sad to say, "a great dinner" is not possible in Santa Paula. If you are willing to drive to Ventura, I highly recommend Brooks Restaurant located at 545 E. Thompson Blvd.
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.
