The plates have been cleared, the entries have been tallied, and we've got a winning city for James Beard Foundation's Taste America® Local Dish Challenge!
After two months of folks dining and Instagramming across the nation, we're excited to reveal that Santa Barbara has taken the title! What's more, this SoCal city took the win through the efforts and patrons of just one restaurant: Julienne, a lovely farm-to-table spot located downtown. Congrats to owners and husband-and-wife team Emma and Justin West! Thanks to your impressive showing, $10,000 will be donated to the Food Bank of Santa Barbara County.
We'd like to thank all of the restaurants, chefs, and diners who helped make the Taste America Local Dish Challenge a smashing success! The final standings are below.
