Jill has a new "place"

Jill Shalhoob is now at the helm of the wine bar, Wine Lovers Bar, down in Ventura.
...a new owner is in place at Wine Lovers.... Now at the helm is Jill Shalhoob of Shalhoob Restaurant, located at the Santa Barbara address where her father, Jerry, opened his one-man butcher shop in 1973 (that business now occupies a larger space less than a mile away). Shalhoob is such a fixture at the Santa Barbara eatery that locals have taken to calling it Jill’s Place, the same moniker she gave her company. She has no plans to tweak the Wine Lovers name (“That’s how I’ve known it since forever ago,” she said with a laugh) but does hope to expand the menu beyond the existing cheese platters and wood-fire pizzas. For now, she’s merely expanded the hours: Wine Lovers now is open from 4 p.m. daily, closing at 10 p.m. on weekdays and at midnight on weekends (1067 E. Thompson Blvd. 652-1810). - Ventura County Star
