9th Annual Savor the AvenuePosted on: March 27th, 2017 by Staff Writer
One of the hallmarks of South Florida’s high season is its most celebrated culinary event: Savor the Avenue. Savor the Avenue was launched nine years ago by Delray & Boca Magazines with Delray Beach’s Downtown Development Authority. Guests can experience an epic al fresco dinner table seating hundreds of people who dine on a scrumptious multicourse dinner in the middle of Downtown Delray Beach. The elegant dining table now stretches for five blocks down the middle of picturesque Atlantic Avenue. It seats more than 1,100 people, and there are 16 Downtown Delray Beach participating restaurants. There is a friendly competition among restaurants to outdo one another when it comes to table decor – and prizes are awarded for the top three winners of this effort. The event also benefits a local charity; this year a portion of all tickets sold will benefit the Delray Beach Public Library. Reservations are required and must be made directly through the participating Delray Beach restaurants starting February 1st and lasting until seats sell out.
