Surfrider San Diego is pleased to announce the first Ocean Friendly Restaurant (OFR) in Carlsbad Village! Dini’s Bistro, located at 3290 Carlsbad Boulevard, joins over 100 other restaurants to be OFR registered in San Diego County. Manager Jana Bizal said “making a few changes to our supplies and employee practices was a natural step for us. We are happy to do our part to protect the beaches, marine life and oceans we all love to enjoy.” Jana explained that staying educated about sustainable practices has always been important to the owners and staff at Dini’s. In fact, in 2016 they were the recipient of the “Recycling Champion” award from Waste Management.
Co-owners Michael Dini and Michael Arellano continue the heritage established by the Dinis brothers: Amerigo, Colombo, and Michael, Sr. The brothers were proprietors of San Diego Count’s oldest bar, McDinis founded in 1890. This famous bar’s license now proudly resides at Dini’s Bistro. The Dini brothers tradition of effervescent hospitality and service to their patrons and community remains alive today. Established in 1987, Dini’s Bistro is a Carlsbad landmark.
Their menu features:
• Salads, homemade soups and sandwiches
• Fresh seafood, chicken and beef entrees
• Hand-tossed pizza
• Kids options
Dini’s Bistro is open every day for lunch and dinner, Saturday and Sundays for brunch. Don’t miss the amazing sunsets from one of the few beach front patios in Carlsbad.
