Starting Thursday, September 17, 2020, Del Mar residents and visitors have been invited to reserve a table to enjoy dinner and drinks at a new pop up at the Del Mar Civic Center outdoor dining venue. Sponsored by the City of Del Mar in partnership with the Del Mar Village Association, Dine on the Deck encourages the public to pick up takeout meals and beverages (including alcoholic beverages) from favorite Del Mar restaurants to enjoy al fresco with sunset ocean views. Bring your own table cloth and silverware.

Set to run on four subsequent Thursday evenings – September 17 and 24 and October 1 and 8 – Dine on the Deck features 16 tables and two seating periods each night, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. and 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. Space is limited and reservations are available on a first come, first served basis; tables are available for a maximum of six people, all of whom must be from the same household.

“Dine on the Deck was developed to support local restaurants and businesses impacted by the ongoing pandemic,” said Ellie Haviland, mayor of Del Mar. “At the same time, we also wanted to provide a safe and fun opportunity for locals and visitors to get out of the house and enjoy the best of what Del Mar has to offer on a late summer evening.”

Following current San Diego County Health and Human Services health and safety protocols, Del Mar City staff will clean and sanitize tables and restrooms in between seating sessions in order to ensure a safe space to enjoy a great meal with a beautiful view. Guests are asked to bring their own tablecloths, wear a face mask when not seated at their table and maintain six feet of distance around people outside their immediate household.

To reserve a table, call 858-793-5448 or email dineondeck@delmar.ca.us.
