Acme Hospitality has announced that their three local dining restaurants, The Lark, Loquita, and La Paloma Café, have been certified by the Surfrider Foundation as Ocean-Friendly Restaurants. As certified as OFR, they practice a commitment to sustainability at each location, utilizing local catch on their menus in celebration of National Seafood Month in October. Moreover, the restaurants make a dedicated effort to develop menus using bycatch – a fish or other marine species caught unintentionally while fishing for specific species or sizes of wildlife. Acme’s team members partnered with Surfrider Foundation to further demonstrate their support with a massive beach clean-up day on the Santa Barbara coastline earlier this month.
