The Bistro restaurant has reopened at Bacara Resort & Spa in Goleta after months of renovations. The Italian eatery now features a private dining room, and is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Bistro is led by Chef de Cuisine Chris Turano, who earned the prestigious role after competing on Food Network’s Chef Wanted with Anne Burrell. Taking the helm of an Italian restaurant is a natural progression for Turano, who grew up cooking Italian cuisine with his Sicilian-born father. “My approach is to keep food simple and let the ingredients speak for themselves, especially when you have California’s bounty at your fingertips,” said Turano. Menu highlights include traditional Italian dishes, such as pastas and brick-oven flatbreads, complemented by lighter, coastal cuisine. For more information call 571-3018.
