Lamb Sliders with Ty Chili Margarita @ San Ysidro Ranch

Though it might cost you a paycheck to stay there, most folks with steady jobs can afford to act like royalty by simply dining at San Ysidro Ranch’s Plow & Angel, a cozy, casual bar-bistro tucked in below the property’s swankier The Stonehouse. Plow & Angel offers this savory-meets-spicy combo, which starts with a sip of the Ty Warner–inspired marg that’s enlivened by Thai-chili-infused tequila, ginger liqueur, pineapple juice, coconut syrup, chili salt on the rim, and a tequila-soaked grilled-pineapple garnish. Then bite into Colorado lamb sliders topped with feta cheese and olive aioli on an English muffin bun and served with fennel-and-apple coleslaw on the side. Chef Matt Johnson’s award-winning kitchen recently brought back these sliders due to the demands of Santa Barbara regulars, who tend to pack the bar as much as tourists many nights of the week. If margs don’t do it for you, opt for one of the barrel-aged Negronis or Manhattans. $19 for sliders; $18 for marg. 900 San Ysidro Ln.; (805) 565-1700;
