Market 10-Year Anniversary Dinner

WHEN: Nov. 10 and Nov. 11, 6 p.m.
WHERE: Market Restaurant + Bar, 3702 Via de la Valle, Del Mar

To keep a restaurant alive for 10 years these days is a bit of a Herculean feat. But three-time James Beard nominee Carl Schroeder has managed to do just that at Market because, well, his food is phenomenal. For these anniversary dinners, he's created a 10-course feast: roasted cauliflower soup & curry-braised Dungeness crab; shaved fuyu persimmon and Asian-pear salad; local spiny lobster and red snapper ceviche; blue cheese soufflé and Tahitian squash-apple chutney; smoked porcini mushroom ravioli and shaved truffles; miso-roasted seabass with dash hot-n-sour; trio of Hudson Valley duck; grilled prime ribeye cap and cabernet-braised short rib; kabocha squash crepes and pear-ginger sorbet; and finally, warm chocolate soufflé cake with milk chocolate malt ice cream. There will be wine pairings for every course. An epic, epic dinner to celebrate one of the city's top restaurants.

COST: $325


Holiday Block Party

WHEN: Dec. 10, 4-7 p.m.
WHERE: Liberty Station, 2640 Historic Decatur Rd., Point Loma

After some hiccups and stops and starts, Liberty Station has really hit its stride. The Liberty Public Market has turned into a great gathering place for locals to check out local food purveyors. Soda & Swine brought some creative edge. Solare has fully turned around into one of the better Italian restaurants in San Diego. And now you've got the city's best pizza, Burona Forchetta, and the team behind Café Chloe opening Chloe at Scout. Their annual Holiday Block Party is a good chance to check out the progress. Art studios will stay open late, there will be art for kids, carolers, ice skating and bites by the restaurants in the compound.

COST: Free
