It is time to make your reservations for the 7th annual Savor the Avenue on March 26th! Tickets go on sale February 1st for an evening of dining under the stars – and down the double yellow line of famed Atlantic Avenue – at the food and wine event of the year. Join hundreds of guests – and 18 of Downtown Delray’s finest restaurants – at Florida’s longest dining table, one that runs more than five blocks and 1,300 feet long stretching from Swinton Avenue east to Fifth Avenue (U.S. 1). This is the event you don’t want to miss! This year‘s participating restaurants are: 32 East, 50 Ocean, Cabana Nuevo Latino , Caffe Luna Rosa, City Oyster & Sushi Bar, Cut 432, D.I.G., Lemongrass, Max’s Harvest, Max’s Social House, Prime, Rack’s Fish House & Oyster Bar, Salt 7, Solita Delray, Taverna Opa, The Office, Tryst, and Vic & Angelo’s. Each 4-course dinner is paired with select wines that are donated by local beverage distributors to each restaurant. The menus can be viewed at bocamag.com/savor and www.downtowndelraybeach.com/savor-and-tastemakers. Reservations are made with the restaurants directly, and seating is limited. The DDA is also proud to announce that a portion of the proceeds from Savor the Avenue will be donated to Delray’s Campaign for Grade Level Reading. Restaurants will donate $3.00 of each reservation to this non-profit to assist in funding books and tutoring programs that will prepare children for life. Over 45% of the children in Delray Beach do not read on a grade level in 3rd Grade. We are thrilled to be able to support this program, “said Laura Simon, Associate Director, DDA. This Delray Beach culinary tradition is made possible by the Delray Beach Magazine’s partnership with the Delray Beach Downtown Development Authority (DDA), and is a way of showcasing the collection of fine dining establishments located within the downtown area. As an economic development focused program for the DDA, the event has grown over the years to be one of the premier dining events in the area, and even the country. ‘We are pleased to have been a part of this very special and unique event for the past seven years as a way to share with the local and tourist community this incredibly social dining experience,” expresses Marjorie Ferrer, Executive Director, DDA. Savor the Avenue is sponsored by: Delray Beach Magazine, Boca Raton Magazine, Delray Beach Downtown Development Authority, Atlas Party Rental, Delray Garden Center, Grimes Events & Party Tents, Seaside Builders and Vista BMW. Last day to reserve your seat is March 19, 2015. For information and menus please visit bocamag.com/savor, downtowndelraybeach.com/savor-andtastemakers, or call 561-243-1077.
