 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 still be offering experiences at two of my pop-up locations, La Costa Wine Co. and The Wine Pub. 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 the modified dinner program AND the delivery program. Events are being added monthly and menus will be created bi-weekly so please check back frequently! 
Thank you for your continued support.
Cheers, 
Erin

 Current Pairing Menu: December 30th - January 31st 

                                 Delivery Only                                        

 
UPDATE 1/14: Don't miss our on our current menu! There are a lot of great options on this expanded menu, so you can keep those dates nights going strong in 2021! Please note that there will be no deliveries January 20-25.
 
As we all get used to our temporary new normal, I just want to reiterate that I am the single source for this delivery program. I solely shop, prepare, clean and deliver these meals, literally every aspect of the menus, I cover. Although many days are crazy long for me because of this, I've decided that ensuring that only one person comes in contact with you and your meals, is the best plan of action during these times. You can schedule deliveries multiple days in advance, if you'd like, it does help me with scheduling! Lastly, please check out the delivery schedule listed at the bottom of the page. Don't worry if you don't see your area, just shoot me an email or text. I'm currently covering nearly all of San Diego County.
 
All items are crafted daily and ready to be enjoyed immediately or refrigerated for later consumption. Want the (almost!) full Chef Erin experience? Add the suggested wine pairing!
