Vegan VirtuesFor chef Greg Arnold's organic menu at Mesa Verde, he sources locally harvested ingredients to create the strictly vegetarian, mostly vegan cuisine. In the leafy space located on the Mesa, Santa Barbara's bluff-top neighborhood north of downtown, he serves cochinita pibil portobello tacos, where mushrooms are a delicious stand-in for slow-roasted pork, a seven-vegetable tagine, and rajas tacos with butternut nacho cheese, a local favorite.
