Brothers Matt and Jeff Nichols served their last dinner at Brothers Restaurant inside Mattei’s Tavern in March, 2012. In mid-November they will fire up the kitchen again, this time as “Brothers Restaurant at Red Barn” located at 3539 Sagunto Street in Santa Ynez. If all goes according to plan I am told they will also be open on Thanksgiving, serving a traditional turkey meal. In April 2012 the Nichols brothers opened another Santa Ynez Valley eatery, “Sides Hardware and Shoes,” at 2375 Alamo Pintado in Los Olivos. For more information on Brothers Restaurant call 688-4142.

    Thanks. But a little late John as I posted this comment on Oct. 23.

    Also note that the brothers are opening The Brothers at the
    Red Barn in Santa Ynez, probably mid-late November.
