The Eastern Mediterranean Meets the Presidio 

Everything from the warm hospitality to the fresh ingredients to the memorable flavors is intended to honor the rich culture of the Eastern Mediterranean. This “East-meets-West” disposition also shines through in its bar program, with drinks crafted with spices, yogurts, and preserved fruits) as well as foraged aromatics from the Presidio, including eucalyptus, rose geranium, and yerba buena. 

Sharing is Delicious  

Dalida encourages guests to follow the principle of “little little in the middle” by engaging in conversation while sharing dishes like “breaking bread” (house made hummus, muhammara, and smoked yogurt spreads plus pickles and olives, all underneath a ballooning Pita).

When we were looking for a space for this restaurant, we knew that we wanted to be integrated into the local environment. From chatting with the owners of other nearby businesses to picking fresh flowers from the community garden, we feel a profound sense of belonging in this beautiful location.”
