Having moved to Ojai five years ago, restaurateur Spoon Singh recently opened
OJAI HARVEST to celebrate what he calls “a community of extraordinary people and amazing local farms”, adding, “we are presently in partnership with more than 10 local fruit, vegetable, and beef suppliers” that comprise the menu of items such as farm-to-table sandwiches, salads, meats, pasta and more. The boho publike eatery came together under the vision of local creatives Channon and Bianca Roe. “Paying homage to an older period of Ojai, we incorporated rustic elements, many of which are sourced locally from the valley,” says Channon of the adobe feel of the space. “It was important from the beginning to honor the diversity of the local community and unify that under one roof.” Adds Singh: “Our goal is to create a gathering place to not only enjoy community but to honor the land and its abundance.” 307 E. Ojai Ave., Ste. 105, Ojai, 805-633-9232.
