Downey's




Overview:

When John Downey opened his namesake restaurant in 1982 the concept was simple... Serve the very best food available, and serve it in a comfortable, unintimidating setting where it would be easy to drop in for an exquisite dinner. Foods were to be sourced locally whenever possible forging a strong working relationship with local organic farmers. Likewise, wines would represent the best of all California, but with a strong emphasis on those from Santa Barbara County. The idea worked well. It worked so well that almost thirty years later that same tenet still applies. It has not gone un-noticed by the dining press, who, over the years has consistently awarded Downey's top honors for fine dining.
