The New Black BBQ, co-owned and operated by Chris Sullivan and Nick Barainca, is a Santa Barbara food truck with a modern twist on traditional BBQ. The New Black (TNB) considers itself the progressive American barbeque joining innovative BBQ techniques and California style with conventional methods.
The New Black BBQ (TNB) has a no frills menu that is straightforward, simple and scrumptious. They use high-end prime cuts of meat that follow Japanese traditions on how the cattle was raised to fit sustainability and there are just three sandwiches on the menu – Kobe Brisket $9, Kurobuta Pork $8 and Jidori Chicken $7. The sandwiches are made one way and “all modifications will be pleasantly declined.” All sandwiches are served with chow-chow and barbeque sauce. There are also just three sides on the menu — beans, coleslaw and potato salad $2 each.
