 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  dinner program AND the delivery program. Events will be added as scheduled and menus will be updated weekly so please check back frequently! 
Thank you for your continued support.
Cheers, 
Erin

              Current Delivery Menu: June 1st - 30th               

                    Delivery Only Fridays-Mondays                    

 
UPDATE 6/2: An all new menu has been posted, including specials covering Father's Day! Though the delivery program continues to decline while in-person wine dinners are starting to increase, I do not plan to end the delivery program at this time. I am modifying delivery days though, to allow for the increase in private events and public wine dinners. Deliveries are now available Friday-Monday, but please be sure to check the schedule below for updated availability.
Please be sure to see the bottom of the menu for the current schedule, full delivery information and instructions! You can schedule deliveries multiple days in advance, if you'd like, it does help me with planning! 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!
