Chef Ramon Velazquez’s menu features dinner favorites and a few new dishes

Spice up your lunch and come taste a little bit of heaven at Cielito Restaurant, 1114 State St. in Santa Barbara, now serving lunch from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. every Monday through Saturday.

Come soak in the sun on the patio next to the turtle fountain, or sit inside Cielito’s historic grand dining room and satisfy all your lunch cravings from Chef Ramon Velazquez’s inventive new lunch menu, and sip your favorite hand-crafted cocktails from the bar!

Cielito’s lunch features a flavorful menu filled with many of your favorites from dinner, plus a few new dishes to tempt you. Cielito’s taco entrees are served on the same fresh, homemade tortillas you love from the taqueria, with rice and a vibrant ensaladita.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
