An exclusive outdoor dining event that started in Montreal is coming to San Diego. Dinner With a View, where up to six people can dine inside a clear dome that has been transformed into a giant terrarium, is making its way across the country—and San Diego is only one of two stops along the West Coast. The dinner is happening at Liberty Station from February 6 through March 8, and ticket sales start today at 10 a.m. For $109.99 per person, you can expect a blind three-course menu (without drinks), cooked by a chef who is yet to be announced. You’ll need at least three friends to book a dome, as each one has a four person minimum for booking.



Moto Deli has reopened in Leucadia, just down the street from its old location on North Coast Highway. Now you can get your Cubanos and grilled cheese sandwiches again.



The owner of Buona Forchetta is giving the public a sneak peek of his new restaurant, Matteo, at the Holiday Walkabout & Luminaria in South Park this Saturday. Owner Matteo Cattaneo said the restaurant will be a nonprofit with an Italian market along with pastries baked by Joanne Sherif, who recently sold Cardamom Café.



After serving seafood in the Gaslamp for more than 20 years, Blue Point Coastal Cuisine shut its doors on Fifth and Market earlier this week. It was one of the first restaurants in the city opened by Cohn Restaurant Group. The Union-Tribune says a new high-end seafood restaurant is going in its place from the owners of Farmer’s Table and Osteria Panevino.



Another big industry headline this week was the news that Sam the Cooking the Guy is going to open a second restaurant at the Little Italy Food Hall, after his the success of his taco stand, Not Not Tacos.
