Like many dining establishments, the Treehouse Restaurant at 3860 State Street closed their doors in April 2020 when new COVID-19 rules went into effect. Unlike most, they never returned. On Halloween I visited Santa Barbara’s permanent ghost town, also known at La Cumbre Plaza, and, while leaving the parking lot, I saw a for-lease sign in front of the former Treehouse space. The sign specifically mentioned that they are looking for a restaurant tenant for the 1966 sqft space. So apparently a new restaurant will not be happening in the immediate future, but their is hope.
