About Us

Inspired by the rich history of artisan wine and cheese producers in both Europe and America, Owners Kelly Briglio and Tina Thayer created one of the first restaurants in Ventura County to showcase cheese and wine pairings.  These “pairings” are complimented by locally sourced organic produce in imaginative ways.

Their dream of Paradise Pantry has grown every year since 2007, now becoming the ultimate cheese and wine mecca for downtown Ventura.
