DEL MAR — For some, the word fine means simply OK. But put it in front of art, cuisine, wine or ales, and the result is the annual Taste of Del Mar and Art Stroll, which featured the best of the best from more than 70 artists and nearly every restaurant in the city.
Hosted by the Del Mar Village Association with support from the city, the Oct. 3 event featured original artwork, ceramics and jewelry. Culinary creations included everything from chili and barbecued tri-tip to lobster and shrimp bisque.
Merchandise from local retailers, a pet stroll and interactive activities for youngsters filled 15th Street and the southbound lane of Camino del Mar, which was closed to traffic to accommodate the event.
