A rumor circulating around town, that periodically whizzes past my window up here in the Santa Barbara Food News Control Tower, suggests that the White family, owners of Boathouse, Casa Blanca, FisHouse, and Santa Barbara Shellfish Co. are considering opening a restaurant at the Big Yellow House in Summerland. I contacted owner Tom White and asked if there was any truth to the story and he quickly put the matter to rest:
None, none at all. The realtor keeps calling me about it, but I don’t know why. It’s probably the last thing we would ever consider, and we’re not considering anything at the moment. Except looking forward to the opening of Salmon season! Best to ya!
