Mundos restaurant at 901 North Milpas Street, which opened August 2017, has closed and a new concept is in the works. Mundos sold their business to chefs Lauren Herman and Christina Olufson. “We’ve been the new tenants as of 10/1 and are excited to be opening our first restaurant as chef-owners!!” says Olufson. “Our neighborhood concept will be seasonal and farmer’s market driven, with counter service and a casual, fun, Santa Barbara atmosphere. We will be open Tuesday-Sunday beginning with dinner service, and look forward to serving lunch and Sunday brunch a couple weeks following. The menu will include some of our favorite dishes such as: garlic-herb roasted chicken, grilled pork belly sandwich, and Korean fried chicken. In addition to the regular menu, we will have daily specials including a Sunday night pot roast dinner, or Wednesday’s chicken pot pie. Desserts will range from cookies to layer cakes, brioche donuts and churros. Our beer and wine list will offer local favorites, and happy hour Tuesday-Friday. We hope to see you in a few weeks!” I’ll try to get you the name of the restaurant next week.

    What are the owners/chef doing now? The food was so good here I’d love to know if they are opening up another location…
