Having absolutely nothing to do with the super-fancy and recently-closed restaurant in Beverly Hills, this Bouchon is a super-fancy and very-much-open restaurant in Santa Barbara. This French place serves one of the finest meals you can have in this town. It’s expensive and you’ll definitely need a reservation, but if you’re in Santa Barbara on a romantic trip of any kind, Bouchon’s meat-heavy menu and French farmhouse interior are exactly what you want.
