Marina del Rey's Cafe del Rey is letting diners source their own dinner with “Permission to Come Aboard,” an $80 fishing trip (fishing gear, license, instruction, and fun included) that ends in a meal prepared just for you by Cafe del Rey's new executive chef Chuck Abair. This Saturday, October 5, hit the swells on a four-hours-plus tour (too long for Gilligan, just right for reeling in a rockfish) off the Pacific coast. Return to the restaurant for a meal starring whatever you hooked. Reservations by phone are recommended. See the full, multi-course menu below.
