Tidbits for November

Saglie returns, International Deli opens, and a new Maui Taco due?

The boy is back in town The Grapevine host and all-around personality Gabe Saglie is returning to Santa Barbara from his two-year sojourn in New York. The folks at Elements gave him a proper welcome last night: a winemaker dinner featuring the vintages from Ampelos Cellars and Consilience Winery.

Treats from out of town International Deli & Market has opened at the crossroads of Hollister Avenue, Modoc Road, and State Street. As the name suggests, international products are key, with a focus on Russian imports like salami, cheeses, and dry goods.

Hola aloha Keep your ojos peeled for a Santa Barbara branch of the chain Maui Tacos. The restaurant, which started in Hawai‘i dishing up Mexican fare with a touch of the Islands, is planning to roll out more than 50 California locations during the next seven years.
