 How We're Navigating Through Unprecedented Times 

After 7 months of closure, we have reopened our La Jolla Bistro for scheduled dinners, only. We are also slowly adding back some of our pop-up locations as we navigate new regulations and restrictions. 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 often and menus will be created bi-weekly so please check back frequently! 
 
Health and safety is of the utmost importance. As the sole preparer of all products and meals, and the single user of the kitchen at KnB Bistro La Jolla, cleanliness and sanitation is paramount and I'm confident in both aspects of my kitchen.
Thank you for your continued support.
Cheers, 
Erin

  Current Pairing Menu: October 28th - November 17th  

                                 Delivery Only                                        

                      (Pick up available on days when dinners are scheduled)                    

UPDATE 10/27: A new menu has been posted, just in time for Halloween and election night! We're also excited to announce the return of our Shelter Island pop-up location, The Wine Pub. We also have a fun event planned at our bistro in La Jolla for Halloween. Details for both and all other upcoming events can be found on our CALENDAR PAGE. Please note there will be no deliveries November 4-11th.
 
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 weekly 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!
