Lucky Penny, 4/7/2014
Reviewer: Sally from santa barbara CA
First comment: why is there only one review of this restaurant??? Atmosphere: One of the eateries recently hatched in the Funk Zone. This place has seating on picnic like tables outside and some umbrellas (we came when it was full sun and luckily got an umbrella. Two poor patron beside us were frying in the heat.) Upbeat music playing. Service: You place an order and sit outside. For how busy the place was we did get our meals relatively on time, although the salads come out before pizza. Food: We ordered two salads and one pizza. I was really needing protein so I asked if she had a salad with meat, she said we can put meat on an salad. I glanced at the list no super wowed but choose the farro salad added chicken to it. When she said 17.00 I thought surely I had heard wrong. With my friend waiting, my bladder calling and people behind me in line I paid and sat down. The pizza was very hot, I couldn't eat it. The salad was dry, and I asked for some salad dressing, she came out and give me little more than a thimbleful.:( Summary: It's great to get eateries when you're trying wine and walking around and not have to drive. Would I go back? No, while I hear their skillet breakfasts look interesting this place is very pricey for what you get.

Serving breakfast and lunch as The Lark preps for dinner, Lucky Penny is a great place to get a casual bite in the funk zone. We've been there several times now, and my favorites are the lamb meatball sandwich and Dan Russo pizza. Fresh ingredients, unique flavors, all enjoyed in a relaxed patio setting. We also enjoyed the arugula/faro salad, especially when the cook warmed up the faro first (however, we got a little snark from one of the chefs, who didn't think the faro should be warmed). There are only two hoppy beers to choose from, and the menu itself is somewhat limited, but what they do serve is really good. Fresh baked goods and espresso drinks are also quite nice.
