A Halloween Heap of Tasty Ventura Fall Treats

by Visit Ventura

Yes smart alecks, Ventura has seasons. In Fall, Ventura’s stars pop a little more. Our sea breeze comes with a little more chill (admittedly a relative term in Southern California). Our sunsets come with a whole lot more blood orange. And with these changes — and yes, the arrival of Halloween — our thoughts turn to comfort foods, innovative food creations, and, maybe your favorite, yummy-sweet treats. Because life is short and diets are, well, boring.

So this Takeout Tuesday we are turning our taste buds in Fall’s direction because our local restaurants have more than risen to the creative task. Witness Paradise Pantry’s Fall Market Bag, the perfect romantic grab and go to accompany that blood orange sunset — on into those popping stars. Or Harvest Cafe’s roasted pumpkin salad (Fall isn’t just candy) and (okay, if you must have sweet) raw pumpkin pie. Frankly, regarding Fall treats, Ventura’s culinary options are almost endless.

And, though this week’s Takeout Tuesday is unique, the critical underlying premise remains the same. Please support your Ventura restaurants. Here at Visit Ventura, we’ve been running with “Takeout Tuesdays” since March. Yes, nine months. And Ventura’s restaurants — most of them owned by our friends and neighbors, because we’re that kind of town — sorely need our help over this long haul. So please, let’s keep the Ventura Love going. On Takeout Tuesday — or, for that matter, any day of the week — please do what you can to help, whether it’s sampling your own pumpkin pie or treating your whole family to a round of desserts for dinner (you’re an adult now; all the rules are off).

Whatever you do to help, every little bit of help matters. Greatly.

Thank you. From us. And, more importantly, from Ventura’s restauranteurs.
