Millionaire Matchmaker’s Favorite Date Restaurants

Slide 10 of 19

Cold Spring Tavern, Santa Barbara

“It’s a romantic, rustic hideaway,” says Stanger. “It’s in a log cabin and feels like it’s from a different time. The fireplace is burning and it has the most amazing venison, cranberry-stuffed chicken and fresh oven-baked bread that’s off the chain. It’s just really cute.” The historic tavern was established in 1865, and served as a rest stop for stagecoaches traveling between Santa Barbara and the Santa Ynez Mountains.
