Barbareño calls itself Central Coast cuisine. We’re not sure exactly what that means, but it must have something to do with good versions of food everyone likes, because that’s exactly what’s going on here. The space is modern, with a front patio perfect for a date night that won’t empty your wallet. Get the tri-tip and whatever the homemade ice cream is that day.
