I received several inquires asking why the sign was taken down at Frankland’s Crab and Company, coming soon to Montecito Inn at 1295 Coast Village Road. I did some research and discovered that they decided to change the color of the sign and it is in the process of being modified. I also learned that Frankland’s will open in late December or early January.
Chef Phillip Frankland Lee is opening multiple restaurants at the Montecito Inn including Monarch, and Scratch Restaurant in the former home of Montecito Cafe. Frankland’s menu focuses on fresh seafood including Local Ridgeback, Snow Crab Claws, Maine Lobster, White Gulf Prawns, Wild-Caught King Crab Legs, and freshly shucked Fried Oysters and Clams. A variety of sandwiches, burgers and fried side dishes are also available in addition to Fish and Chips. Chef Lee opened his first Frankland’s last May at 16101 Ventura Boulevard in Encino.
