Cozy up with a Hot Apple Crisp

The sun may still be shining in beautiful Del Mar, but the coastal breeze and crisp December air has inspired us to craft up a festive Christmas Cocktail- The Hot Apple Crisp. With the perfect combination of tart and sweet with just a touch of creaminess, it's an easy favorite!

Cozy up to the fireplace this December with a round of Hot Apple Crisps, or if we won’t be seeing you this holiday season, whip one up at home and join us in spirit. Happy Holidays!

Charlie Trotter Day Menu at KITCHEN 1540

What is Charlie Trotter Day you ask?
Charlie Trotter was an advocate of ethical cooking and greatly involved with philanthropic efforts both in and outside of the restaurant industry. His restaurant, “Charlie Trotter’s”, in Chicago, garnered scores of awards from The James Beard Foundation to the Michelin Guide, and legions of chefs worked for him before going on to open their own establishments. A year after his passing, August 17 has been proclaimed Charlie Trotter Day by The State of Illinois.

On this Saturday, August 16 and Sunday, August 17, KITCHEN 1540’s Culinary Team invites you to commemorate the opening of Charlie Trotter’s restaurant and celebrate his lasting legacy. Dedicated to the craft of melding classic technique with modern cuisine, KITCHEN 1540 will serve a special 3-course menu of the Trotter’s dishes as a nod to the famed chef, who was an extraordinary cook and mentor.

If you are a foodie – and who isn’t? Please join us for dinner this Saturday and Sunday to partake in this very special menu.

San Diego Earth Day Activities

Today marks a special day across the planet.  In conjunction with Destination Earth, L’Auberge Del Mar is participating in Earth Day by “turning down the power” this evening. We will dim all the lights in the lobby and around certain areas of the hotel. If you would like to participate at home or while you are staying with us, please turn off any lights, a/c, television, radio or anything at all that requires the use of power for a portion of your evening. At L’Auberge Del Mar, guests can enjoy sitting on the patio and listening to the sounds of the ocean, visiting with family or just breathing in the refreshing night air that surrounds us. Upon check-in today, our Front Desk will provide a LED key ring light.
