When traveling to Santa Maria, Ca. to attend my granddaughters graduation, my wife and I did a little Google search to find a place to eat. This restaurant pop'd up so we decided to give it a try. We had misgivings about going to a shopping mall to have dinner but any qualms vanished very quickly when we walked in. The decor is great and seating is in a sunroom area. Our waitress was a young lady by the name of Lauren. A bright, energetic lady with a smile that would light up a room. Her accomplice was a chipper young man by the name of Michael. He was not only very courteous, he has a great sense of humor adding a very pleasant dimension to our dinner. Now to the Dinner fare. We both ordered the Buttermilk Soaked Southern Fried Chicken. OH, what a meal!! Executive Chef Nick Nolan is to be lauded for creating this chicken dinner. You are treated to two Breasts Slow Cooked to a Golden Crisp, Sweet Potato Puree, Salt & Pepper Green Beans & surrounded with a moat of Truffle Honey. I had a glass of Sunstone Sharah Rose (http://sunstonewinery.com/) while my wife had a glass of Tolosa Cabernet Sauvignon (http://www.tolosawinery.com/). Ambrosia describes the tastes enjoyed with this dinner. I do want to make one caveat. When you order your dinner and they ask you if you would like a salad to go with dinner and you ask for simple dinner salad, they bring you so much it is doubtful you will finish it off. The two of us together could not consume the little salad and our dinners. During the entire dinner, we had both Lauren and Michael stopping by very unobtrusively but checking to ensure our dinner was to our taste. I can only say my hat's off to Ashlee Hillier the manager. She has assembled an awesome staff to serve her mid-week guests.
