Ballard Inn update

This just in from reader Tyler:

Just wanted to let you know that The Ballard Inn [at 2436 Baseline Avenue in Ballard, CA] changed hands a couple of months ago. They have an excellent chef who is creating some Creole dishes that are amazing. It is one of my new favorite restaurants here in the Santa Ynez Valley.

    It’s the amazing Chef Nik Ramirez! He used to be at Loquita, another popular place in Santa Barbara. They also remodeled their outdoor space…

    Executive Chef Nik Ramirez – The Ballard Inn is thrilled that Chef Nikolas Ramirez’s culinary journey led him to the Santa Ynez Valley. Chef Nik’s dedication and abilities were quickly recognized, first as Sous Chef, then Chef de Cuisine prior to landing a position as Executive Chef of Loquita in Santa Barbara. Chef Ramirez infuses flavours from his global adventures – to Japan, Taiwan, Bangkok, France, Copenhagen and more. Having found his passion, Chef Ramirez dove into expanding his culinary repertoire, and has brought his mastery to The Ballard Inn. Enjoy inspired cuisine for a truly delectable menu that features seasonal, locally sourced produce, seafood, and meats.
