This month, Pacifica Del Mar commemorates its quarter-century birthday.  The classic Del Mar Village restaurant atop Del Mar Plaza is celebrating, and everyone is invited. Starting October 1, Pacifica will remind guests what a true dining experience is supposed to be like, with a chef’s tasting menu highlighting favorite dishes both old and new. “Greatest Hit” dishes will be offered in a three-course tasting menu for $25. From old classics to new favorites, the nightly tasting menu will be available until the end of the year. (858.792.0476, www.pacificadelmar.com)
