 How We're Navigating Through Unprecedented Times 

In early November, we were placed back in the purple tier with tighter restrictions and no allowed indoor dining. Due to this, I made the very difficult decision to permanently close my La Jolla Bistro. All hope is not lost, this is just a moment in time. A longer moment than we all hoped, but one that will come to and end. I will start events back up as soon as feasibly possible. Please check out our calendar page for details. While we're excited to bring back wine dinners, we absolutely understand that many are not yet ready to venture out. For the foreseeable future we will offer both a modified dinner program AND the delivery program. Events will be added shortly and menus will be updated weekly so please check back frequently! 
Thank you for your continued support.
Cheers, 
Erin
