Film Feast’ returns to Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara rolls out the red carpet for the second edition of “Film Feast,”a special tasting-menu program coinciding with the star-studded Santa Barbara International Film Festival (SBIFF), Jan. 26 – Feb. 5, 2012, and California Restaurant Month. New this year, Film Feast tasting menus include liquid indulgences ranging from Bacara Resort & Spa Bar’s inventive cocktail flights to wine-tasting in “threes”offered at downtown and wine-country tasting rooms. In addition, several establishments are bringing the drama tableside with menus themed to classic and contemporary films like Olio e Limone Ristorante’s “La Dolce Vita”menu and Adama’s “Like Water for Chocolate”inspiration. Eleven Film Sleeps hotel packages invite out-of-town guests to linger longer after the credits roll.
