Blue Tavern

Blue Tavern

Chef Ricardo Zarate of Chef Zarate Restaurant Group opened Blue Tavern in 2013. The restaurant is situated just two blocks from the ocean amid Santa Barbara’s most coveted real estate on State Street. Showcasing a natural progression of Zarate’s proficiency for blending cultures, Blue Tavern features quintessential Californian fare, such as pizza, pasta, and grilled meats, envisioned through the culinary lens of a native Peruvian.
