Pre-Theatre dinner in Ventura?

jonplaywright Oct 18, 2011 06:13 PM

We're seeing a show on a Wednesday at 7 PM in Ventura next week, and so we're looking for a high quality place to eat that opens at 5 PM--anything else would be too much of a rush, I think. I don't know the restaurant scene there too well, as I usually just drive on to Santa Barbara to eat after a show. Any recommendations in Ventura itself? Could be anything from high end New American to seafood to ethnic--as long as it's good. Thanks!

    My favorite restaurant in Ventura is Brooks. Their website states they open at 5pm.

        Thanks, Bruce. I saw that one, and it looks great, but the problem is they don't open until 5:30, which makes it a little tight for a 7:00 PM show.
