Immortalized by singer Jack Johnson as “the DLG” in his famous song Bubble Toes, De la Guerra Dining Commons showcases platform food production, preparing seasonal menu items “just in time” to ensure food is always fresh. Diners can enjoy their lunch and dinner in a beautiful, contemporary dining facility while gazing at the UCSB lagoon and the Pacific Ocean. Staying up late? DLG is open from 9pm-12:30am with a special late-night menu.
