La Posta tops the list.

We have a list of favorite restaurants and suggested things to do in Santa Cruz that we provide in our Guest Binder for those staying at Beach Haven at Seabright. To each their own, as they say, and you can take these reccos with a grain of salt, but we are series foodies and we're pretty picky about the quality of food we get when we go out to eat or have something delivered. So we're highlighting a few restaurants in this blog in case you want to check them out while visiting Santa Cruz. Many of which are in the Seabright area and easy walking distance from the vacation rental house.

Topping the list is one of our favorites, Las Posta Restaurant – a neighborhood restaurant offering a changing menu made from local and seasonal ingredients, and a solid wine list (or you can bring your own for a corkage fee.) La Posta encourages reservations but walk-ins are welcome. But seriously, make a reservation.

Our personal favorite menu items include a wonderful beef short rib, roast chicken, braised pork belly, lamb chop, various gourmet pizzas and house-made bread from their brick oven, fresh pastas, cured meats, beautiful salads and this amazing gnocchi dish we had the other night shown here. Really great, friendly service too and reasonable corkage fees.
