My bestie from College celebrated her dirty thirty in Santa Barbara last month and for her birthday dinner we went to Blush Restaurant & Lounge. The restaurant was located in the heart of all the downtown bars and even turned into a hot night spot after 11pm. That part was super convenient since we could park once and walk around after dinner.
Overall the restaurant was nice, had a large outdoor area with great decor and the menu was amazing. We were pretty exhausted from day drinking/wine tasting so we really enjoyed the nice outdoor atmosphere. My only complaint is that it was hard to find our waitress…but oh well~ the rest of the night was lovely.
I ordered the Strawberry Ginger Old Fashioned (jack daniels honey whiskey, lemon juice, fresh muddled fruit & ginger beer). SO FREAKING GOOD. I normally hate whiskey but jack daniel’s honey whiskey tastes like candy. I love mixology cocktails with lots of thought behind the ingredients so it’s a treat to get to try different ones. =)
Me and the Birthday girl!
My California Burger! It had Avocado, Roasted Tomatoes, Bacon, Blue Cheese and Mixed Greens. YUMM
Cheers to a successful thirtieth!
I can’t remember what the dessert was called but it was ice cream and cookies.
