YELLOW BELLY COMING TO DE LA VINA

A new restaurant and craft beer tap room named Yellow Belly is coming to 2611 De la Vina street, the former home of TAP Thai cuisine (which moved to upper State). I spoke with restaurant owners Alex Noormand and Tracy Clark and was told that they hope to open in June. Noormand has been running Crushcakes Café on Anacapa street for the last 5 years. I’m told the eatery will also offer soups, salads and sandwiches. Part of the De la Vina street building will be used by Alex’s sister Shannon Gaston who will share the kitchen and open a Crushcakes wedding cake tasting room.

The official name of the business will be “Yellow Belly Tap Sucker Bar And Restaurant.” This is word play on a real bird named “Yellow Belly Sap Sucker.”

    A well done craft beer tap room with a great beer selection (like American Ale) could do great in that location. Hopefully the menu reflects the type of food that will compliment the beer selections. Soups, salads and sandwiches doesn’t exactly seem like it will appeal to the craft beer audience but I look forward to giving it a try.

    Love the addition, would have liked for them to have crept further to upper state, we need something to replace the semi-ok DTB.

    Any new news on this opening? Almost the end of June and no mention that they are open for business.
