Here is a press-release from Bear and Star at 2860 Grand Avenue, Los Olivos:

Los Olivos’ The Bear and Star, serving “Refined Ranch Cuisine” inspired by the Parker family hospitality at the eponymous Fess Parker Inn, celebrates Valentine’s Day Dinner on Wednesday, February 14, 2018, with a holiday menu created by Chef John Cox and his team. The Bear and Star has quickly been embraced by food-conscious diners applauding the restaurant’s sustainable menu program. The restaurant is a pioneer in Santa Barbara County in its true ranch to table philosophy, with a commitment to sourcing most of its meats, fowl and produce from the Parker ranch and organic farm or nearby purveyors, built on Santa Barbara County’s rich ecosystem.

Chef Cox’s extravagant Valentine’s Day dinner is perfect for toasting romance in the Santa Barbara Wine Country. The evening begins with an Amuse – Deviled Farm Egg with Caviar; followed by a First Course choice of Three Morro Bay Reserve Oysters with Santa Barbara Rock Crab “Rockefeller”; or Winter Greens with Crispy Country Ham, Asian Pear and Goat Cheese. The Second Corse is Parker Ranch Wagyu Short Ribs with Stone-Ground Polenta and Pan-Roasted Kale; or Wild Chanterelle Mushrooms with Creamy Toasted Orzo, Black Truffle Camembert and Lemon-Parsley Gremolata. Dessert is a perfect ending with either a Key Lime Pie with Graham Cracker Crust; or a Dark Chocolate Ganache Cake with Cassis. Petit Fours and Chocolate-Covered Strawberry are presented before guests depart. Sparkling and wine pairings are available for the dinner selected by The Bear and Star’s General Manager Robert Williams.

Pricing for the Valentine’s Day menu is $68 per adult and $35 additional for the optional wine and sparkling pairing. For those desiring to start their Valentine’s Day earlier, The Bear and Star also offers their complete fresh ranch menus for breakfast and lunch.
