I am more than a little bit late with this story. After visiting my mom in Montecito recently, I stopped by Pierre Lafond (my go-to place for candy while attending nearby Montecito Union Elementary School back in the day) and noticed a sign dated December 5, 2022 on the front door of the former home of Montecito Wine Bistro saying that “East Valley Kitchen LLC” will be the next tenant. In April 2022 I broke the news that Montecito Wine Bistro was in talks to be acquired. Today I read that the Montecito Journal has reported about Montecito hedge fund titan Graham Duncan and they say that Duncan is the new owner of the restaurant.
