WHAT IT IS:
This signature tradition of dining under the stars down the middle of Atlantic Avenue is here again—our 12th year!—featuring a four-course legendary downtown Delray Beach dining experience you won’t want to miss.
Right on the street, outdoors on E. Atlantic Ave., at tables stretching from Swinton Ave. to East Fifth Ave./U.S. 1. #OUTSIDEDINING
Monday, April 19, 2021 5:30-9:00 p.m. is the current date as of press deadline, but it may be changed to a later date in May depending on city COVID guidelines. Please check with DowntownDelrayBeach.com for the latest information.
WHO IT BENEFITS:
Community Greening is a Delray Beach based nonprofit dedicated to planting trees and protecting green spaces. Matt Shipley and Mark Cassini are behind the charity, which is patterned on a host of other grassroots urban forestry organizations around the country that are working to increase the local tree canopy and educate people on the critical role trees can play in the urban infrastructure. It provides native trees and certain fruit trees to eligible groups and neighborhoods at no cost, taking on the site and species selection, making sure any necessary permits are in place, and providing the tools needed for planting. The silver palms, red maples, avocados and other trees Community Greening is planting help clean the air and water, increase property values, improve health and well being and reduce energy bills.
HOW YOU CAN GO:
Guests cannot buy tickets to the event; reservations must be made directly with the participating restaurant of your choice. Review the restaurant listings below; menus are available online at bocamag.com/Savor-The-Avenue-2021 or DowntownDelrayBeach.com/SavorTheAvenue or at the restaurant by March 8. But you have to act fast; when reservations open up March
15, seats go quickly, and the event is usually sold out. (And there are even fewer seats this year due to CDC guidelines.) Reservations reserved with a credit card depend on each restaurant’s policy.
HOW TO CHECK IN AT THE EVENT:
You’ll need to check in at the restaurant location on the Avenue the night of; you’ll get a temperature check, a wristband and a lanyard to identify you as a Savor participant, both required to attend. For more particulars, please visit DowntownDelrayBeach.com/SavorTheAvenue
