Fabio Trabocchi brings the flair and fare of coastal Spain to the District Wharf. Prepare to be dazzled.

Located at the District Wharf, Del Mar features authentic seafood fare and flavors from the coasts of Spain, the robust menu includes tapas, raw bar, charcoal grilled fish, seafood stews, and a variety of rice dishes (yes, paella)! 

The space, not to be outdone by the menu, is a feast for the eyes. A visit here will feel like a mini getaway with walls of windows to drink in the views, vibrant coastal hues, and layers of textures and patterns carefully selected to transport you.
