ABOUT

THE

LARK: The Lark pays homage to the history of California train travel and tributes

the treasured and long gone Santa Barbara Fish Market. Built in the 1920’s, the original commercial fish processing plant shipped their seafood products throughout the state by rail. With an imaginative yet approachable menu created by the gifted Jason Paluska, The Lark celebrates everything found around Santa Barbara County – wineries, farms, ocean and natural beauty. The stunning design strives to connect to the past and the future, using discovered objects from the past and blending them with modern, urban and industrial materials to spectacular effect.
