BROPHY’S BUYS MISSION SANTA BARBARA

Sources tell me that the family behind Brophy Bros. restaurant, who have acquired or are in the process of acquiring 3 businesses this year (Maggie’s, Arch Rock Fish, Farmer Boy), have announced their 4th purchase in as many months: the historic Mission Santa Barbara. The Mission and Brophy’s were founded exactly 200 years apart: 1786 and 1986. Sources added that the 228 year-old landmark and popular tourist destination will soon start serving fresh seafood and clam chowder. I’m told that dining staff will wear uniforms reminiscent of a brown-robed friar.
