Dinner With A View, a unique pop-up dining event coming to Liberty Station this February, announces its partnership with Top Chef contestant and local chef, Claudette Zepeda, who will prepare an exclusive three-course meal for guests to enjoy.

Dinner With A View will be located in Liberty Station’s Central Promenade and will feature 33 beautiful, intimate clear frameless geodesic domes that have been transformed into terrariums. The dining event will launch February 6, 2020 and will run through March 8, 2020.

“I am thrilled to be the chef partner for Dinner With A View in San Diego,” says Zepeda. “Guests can look forward to unexpected flavor combinations that will reflect my journey over the last several years, all in one place.
