Dory Deli opened on the Newport Beach Boardwalk in January 2015. The name and idea came from the historic Dory Fleet Market. The Dory Fleet Market had its beginning in late 1891 when an enterprising fisherman tired of selling his fish to the wholesalers began marketing to the public on the beach. The Dory Fleet Market, located alongside the Newport Pier, still has its special Old World charm. This unique market makes one reflect on an era when life was simpler. The Newport Beach Historical Society recognized the fleet as a permanent local historical landmark dedicated June of 1969.
The concept and product of Dory Deli is unlike any other. Life is too short to eat mediocre food. The quality and freshness of our food is what sets us apart from the rest.
