Pacifica Del Mar reopened for patio dining earlier this month and executive chef Chris Idso has introduced a new seafood-focused dinner menu.

The ocean-facing restaurant atop the Del Mar Plaza center is now serving bluefin tuna poke, Spanish octopus salad, sugar-spiced Verlasso salmon, seared sea scallops and grilled mahi mahi.

Service begins at 11 a.m. daily at 1555 Camino Del Mar in Del Mar. Visit
