SANTA BARBARA, CA -

Arlington Tavern is making more room for its guests. The upscale restaurant on Victoria Street in Downtown Santa Barbara is now offering patio seating.
Guests can dine outdoors and try some of the signature items such as the fried chicken or truffle mac n'cheese with a set-up of  wooden tables, candles and heaters.

The patio seating is right across the street from the public market place that's set to open in the spring and the new shops and condos that are going up. The patio seats about 16 guests. The tavern is also hoping to start serving brunch in the coming months.
