Del Mar City Council approves sidewalk café permit for Del Mar Rendezvous

By Marlena Chavira-Medford

The Del Mar City Council on April 11 approved a sidewalk café permit for Del Mar Rendezvous, which is located at the north end of Del Mar’s Plaza street level.

The restaurant, located at 1555 Camino Del Mar, already operates a sidewalk café in this right-of-way, but this most recent permit includes new plans for glass panels and steel planter boxes instead of the existing wrought iron railing and clay planters. The new alignment will also extend 21 inches farther out from the building than the current railing, and 28 feet farther to the south along the sidewalk. This new alignment will allow for a six-foot-wide clearance for pedestrians.

The new plans also call for permanent heaters and a string of light fixtures, which will be suspended from a new awning. That awning is scheduled to go before the Design Review Board (DRB) later this month because its design does not qualify for a DRB exemption under the Plaza Specific Plan Tenant Design Manual.

A handful of residents spoke in favor of the new concept, and council members stated that they’d received many emails in favor of it as well.
