2018 INSPIRATION GUIDE
THE PERFECT PAIRINGS
PARADISE PANTRY IS
A GOURMET'S DREAM
Paradise Pantry, a beloved neighborhood
restaurant with an acclaimed cheese/
wine store too, has a seasonal menu
that's locally sourced. Co-owner Chef
Kelly's imaginative and delicious take on
sandwiches and salads pairs well with coowner Tina's expansive, well-curated wine
list. Ask any local and they'll rave about
the weekly special mac 'n cheese.
LIMÓN Y SAL LIVES UP TO ITS NAME
In a landmark building downtown, Limón
y Sal is the latest opening from the Ortiz
family, longtime Ventura restaurateurs.
Modern, gourmet Mexican is served in
a lively atmosphere, where the cocktail
program focuses on top-shelf tequila.
Start with made-to-order guacamole and
a refreshing cucumber margarita. Seafood
entrees rule the menu; if you can't decide
what to order, try the Tablita Del Mar, a
family-style seafood platter.
