This could be our new favorite season and maybe even more fun than the Holiday season! Celebrating its third year season in Orange County, SOL is bring back the “Dock & Dine Season” in Newport Beach! These spring and summer months will focus on delivering unforgettable Mexican menus to guests docked at their Balboa Marina location. “Dock & Dine,” full-service dockside catering, was created by Executive Chef Deborah Schneider, to extend the SOL experience to those wanting to take advantage of the natural beauty that lies in SOL’s backyard.
“SOL’s location at the Balboa Marina is prime docking for those looking for the perfect ambiance to enjoy a sunny afternoon or a scenic nightscape,” said Matt Baumayr, Managing Partner of SOL Cocina. “It’s true that we offer our dockside catering throughout the year, but with the increase in number of boats visiting our docks during the spring and summer, it only seemed natural to want ‘kick off’ the “Dock & Dine” season and really highlight our catering capabilities, which include beer, wine and SOL’s fresh margarita kit, created to tranform a novice bartender into a SOL-worthy mixologist!”
An extension of SOL Catering, “Dock & Dine” stays true to the restaurant’s dining room experience, by offering five different tasting menu packages that take an eclectic twist on traditional Baja, ranging from the AZUL, priced at $75 for a group of six, to the TACOS SOL, priced at $150 for a group of up to 10. The latter is the most extravagant, featuring a variety of SOL favorites, including Grilled Carne Asada, Kurobuta Pork Carnitas, Lemon-Garlic Chicken, Grilled Fish Zarandeado and Carne Asada Tacos Vampiros. The menu includes SOL’s signature salsas, guacamole and Borracho black beans with cotixa cheese, served with crispy tostadas and warm corn tortillas. In addition to the set menus, guests may add on a number of a la carte options.
“The Dock & Dine menus were developed for those looking for a little excitement with sumptuous fare without any hassle,” added Deborah Schneider, Executive Chef & Partner at SOL Cocina. “I created each of these unique menus, offering a variety of options, to provide more than just a snack or light meal, but an experience that guests will not soon forget.”
