To round up the week on the Santa Barbara Funk Zone, the public art and penny cafe, I had an amazing dinner adventure at Spare Parts Bistro! Spare Parts Bistro is a pop up dinner or otherwise called a supper club experience. What’s that you ask? It’s a weekly 5-course prix fixe dinner put together by a chef and a restaurateur at a location that will be sent to you only after you RSVP (and yes the location is still in the Santa Barbara area)! Each weekly dinner only seats 20 and it’s all at a communal table where you get to know other fun people, learn about each course as its served and have a great dinner adventure!
The dinner adventure began when we entered The Loft which was the location for this inner. Outside The Loft was just as interesting as the graffiti type art mural in the entry hall!
The dinner menu is never the same and Spare Parts Bistro uses local ingredients with interesting twists. What it meant for me was expanding my food horizons! Yes, both my husband and I thought we might need to pick up a sandwich ‘after’ the dinner because half of the courses had things we weren’t quite sure about. Here’s the amazing menu which was truly amazing!
I can’t say enough good things about the food itself since I ate every bit ! My favorite of course had to be the toffee candied bacon crowing the maple creme brulee – who doesn’t like bacon on their dessert! What you should know is I ate every enjoyable bite and I’m not a seafood fan, I never have tried lamb outside of a gyro and creme brulee is never in my dessert line-up. The same was true for my husband too. No after dinner sandwich was needed!
If your ever in the area check out the Spare Parts Bistro dinner and if not, check your town for a pop up dinner, farm table event or supper club!
Enjoy being adventurous about your food and spend time with great people making dinner an adventure!
