L’Auberge Del Mar Features Open-Air Dining Venues With “Insider Tips”

Del Mar, Calif.- As we drift through September, San Diego’s secret summer season is just beginning. There’s no better way to enjoy the warm days and mild evenings, than dining outdoors, especially with the backdrop of the Pacific Ocean. L’Auberge Del Mar’s idyllic location in the heart of Del Mar just steps from the beach makes it the perfect place to enjoy a meal, small bite or cocktail in the open air. 

Private Cabanas

While inside KITCHEN 1540 may be full of energy and intrigue, the patio at L’Auberge Del Mar’s signature restaurant is serene and romantic. Private dining cabanas are surrounded by a garden-like setting punctuated with a waterfall, hanging lanterns and a vertical, hydroponic garden that floats among the tables. Insider Tip:  Kick-off a perfect evening beneath the stars with Fried Brussel Sprouts with red pepper, bacon and bleu cheese or the Cool Corn Soup. 

Bleu Bar

The Bleu Bar is all about breathtaking sunsets and the latest in swank cocktails. Guests can relax on stylish modular couches near the edgy blue-flame fire pit while admiring the blue Pacific at this chic outdoor venue. Insider Tip:  For a refreshing libation, try the signature Bobby cocktail. Created by L’Auberge mixologist Roberto, the drink is a delightful mix of Kettle One, St. Germain, grapefruit and fresh lime.

Waterfall Terrace

A late morning breakfast or leisurely weekend lunch never looked better than from the vantage point of Waterfall Terrace, an outdoor restaurant with spectacular ocean views. This relaxed, casual venue features the classics, just done with a bit of L’Auberge flair. Insider Tip:  The Seafood Salad, Fish Tacos and Breakfast Pizza are among guest favorites.
