Savor the Avenue 2024: A Culinary Extravaganza Under the Stars

Savor the Avenue 2024: A Culinary Extravaganza Under the Stars

Dining al fresco takes on a whole new meaning at Savor the Avenue, a signature tradition in downtown Delray Beach celebrating its 15th year. This extraordinary event transforms East Atlantic Avenue into Florida‘s longest dining table, offering a multicourse dining experience under the stars. Set to take place on Monday, March 25, 2024, from 5:30 to 9 p.m., Savor the Avenue promises an unforgettable evening of culinary delights and community spirit.

Where and When

The enchanting affair unfolds right on the street, stretching from Swinton Avenue to East Fifth Avenue/U.S. 1. This unique outdoor dining experience showcases the vibrant atmosphere of downtown Delray Beach. The event kicks off at 5:30 p.m. and continues until 9 p.m., allowing attendees to savor every moment of this exceptional gathering.

Benefiting Eat Better Live Better

Savor the Avenue isn’t just a feast for the senses; it also supports a worthy cause. The event benefits “Eat Better Live Better,” an initiative dedicated to preventing, reversing, and reducing childhood obesity and dietary-related illnesses. This program provides healthy foods, nutrition education, grocery assistance for Palm Beach County families and seniors, and nutritious snack packs for children in schools and camps. The mission is clear: to ensure everyone has access to nutrition education and healthy foods, regardless of background or life experiences.

Reservations and Participation

To be part of this culinary celebration, reservations are a must. Unlike traditional ticketed events, Savor the Avenue operates on a reservation-only basis. Guests need to make reservations directly with their chosen participating restaurants. The restaurant listings and menus are available on the Downtown Delray Beach site. Reservations open on Feb. 1, 2024, and with limited seats available, they tend to fill up quickly, making early booking essential.

It’s important to note that while the event itself accommodates around 900 to 1,000 participants, all the restaurants, both participating and along the street, will be open for dinner service. This unique setup adds an extra layer of fun and energy to the evening.

Check-In and Table Décor Contest

On the night of the event, East Atlantic Ave is closed to traffic, creating a pedestrian-friendly zone. Participants should check in at their chosen restaurant location on the Avenue. After check-in, attendees receive a wristband and lanyard, identifying them as Savor participants. For more details on check-in procedures, visit the Downtown Delray Beach site.

Adding to the allure, Savor the Avenue restaurants engage in a friendly competition for the “Best in Show” table. Each restaurant decorates its table with a unique theme, ranging from elegant to eclectic, showcasing its distinctive style or cuisine. Attendees are encouraged to arrive early and stroll along the Avenue to admire the creatively adorned tables.

Dinner and Delights

The evening unfolds in a sequence of delightful experiences. A welcome reception from each participating restaurant, featuring a welcome drink, kicks off the festivities from 5:30 p.m. to 6:15 p.m. At 6:15 p.m., seating commences, and the hosts from Delray Beach welcome the participants.

From 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., the real star of the show takes center stage: a four-course culinary extravaganza paired with custom adult beverages. As guests indulge in the carefully crafted dishes, the anticipation builds for the announcement of the table décor contest winner at 7:30 p.m., adding an element of friendly competition to the evening.

Savor the Avenue 2024 promises not just a meal but an experience—a celebration of community, culinary artistry, and the joy of dining under the stars in one of Florida‘s most charming locales. Reserve your seat early, and get ready for an unforgettable night of Savoring the Avenue.
