Reader Ted let me know that the previously unnamed restaurant for employees at Deckers Outdoor Corporation, 6601 Hollister Avenue in Goleta (next to the Deckers brand showcase), has officially opened to the public and called as The Deck. The restaurant is operated by Guckenheimer Dining Services.
Manager and Chef Edward Huante tells me that the breakfast menu includes eggs, bacon, 3 types of sausage, hash browns, and daily specials. Lunch options include 2 soups daily (one is vegetarian or vegan, and the other a chicken or beef stew), 2 daily specials, a build-your-own sandwich deli, and a grab-and-go deli. Huante says on Mondays he tries to have more vegetarian fare. Tuesdays through Friday they have pizza by the slice made fresh at their outdoor pizza oven ($2.95 for 2 large slices). A Poke bar, taco bar, and burger bar are available occasionally. Fresh baked goods are available daily.
Hours are 8-10:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Monday-Friday. Coffee, smoothies and juice is available 7:30 a.m-3 p.m. Call 967-7611 x2233 or visit dining.guckenheimer.com/deckers to view the daily menu specials.
