To Our Dearest Guests and Community:

This evening I participated in a call with the County’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Nick Yphantides, and County Supervisor Jim Desmond. If you are interested, a summary of the call may be found below. Shortly after the call, Governor Newsom made his announcement for California to shelter in place. We wish you all good health, safety and best wishes during these unprecedented times.

Green Dragon Tavern & Museum takes great pride in serving, as well as being part of, the Carlsbad and greater San Diego community. It has truly been our privilege over the last six years. As a family owned business, your support means the world to us. Thank you!

On behalf of our Green Dragon Family, in the interest of keeping our City safe and in accordance with recent ordinances, we are temporarily suspending our operations. We are working in real time to assess our options in this unprecedented time and find opportunities to provide employment for our amazing team.

These are hard working people - parents, caregivers, professional cooks and dishwashers, servers, bussers and hospitality ambassadors, students on paths to careers in medicine, marketing, wedding & event planning, entrepreneurs and several future first responders. They have ensured the execution flawless weddings, rehearsal dinners, corporate meetings, celebrations of life, anniversary and retirement parties and so much more...in other words, the memorable events for so many.

We hope to reopen to provide take-out, delivery and catering options to our community as quickly as possible until we can reopen to the public. We are counting down the days to open our doors to our loyal restaurant patrons, event clients and the many who come to visit our museum. We were just planning our next school field trip. We look forward to welcoming so many more in the near future. Members of our team will be working and we will be checking voice messages and attending to emails while in transition. Please continue to follow us and check our website at www.greendragontavernca.com for updates!

From being a UCSD graduate majoring in political science and minoring in history to spending the last 7+ years conceptualizing Green Dragon Tavern with our owner, to raising this business like a beloved child, and to sharing our collection of documents and the stories of our nation's founders with hundreds of thousands of guests, at this time I cannot help but think about the verbiage used by our Founders and their sage, select choice of words used in the Declaration of Independence - specifically, the Pursuit of Happiness.

The pursuit of happiness is defined as a fundamental right mentioned in the Declaration of Independence to freely pursue joy and live life in a (legal) way that makes you happy.

There are so many legitimate concerns, fears, uncertainties and stresses that many of us may experience in the present and near future.

- We share these emotions and concerns with those faced by our founding fathers and mothers.
- It is in our DNA to be fighters and to champion what is right and just, just as it is to survive and become stronger than we could have ever anticipated.
- We are better when we band together and support one another.
- And most importantly, with all that we are experiencing, I wish for all of you to play that favorite song once per day (or more!), watch that funny show, feel the warmth of the sun, read that beautifully distracting book, savor that meal that brings back memories, share loving words and, most of all, make time to pursue happiness.

- It is your right, regardless of what is going on, and you deserve it.

Stay healthy. Stay Safe.

Your Green Dragon Family

Call Summary:

- Dr. Nick states that this is an unprecedented situation. He called it the “tip of the iceberg” with regards to the lack of test kits available, the inability to assess how many have the virus, but are not showing symptoms or showing minimal systems.
- He also stated that we are in the “eye of the hurricane – health hurricane of potentially substantial categorical proportion” and clarified that by stating that the duration of time before this subsides will be dependent on social distancing of 6ft., minimal contact (isolation), and the ability to contain the spread. We are still early in the process.
- As of 5PM tonight, there are only 105 confirmed cases in San Diego (up 15 from yesterday) | 89 local residents | 8 quarantined @ Miramar | and 8 who were traveling and treated here
- 14 hospitalized | no deaths – San Diego
- San Diego has a population of 3.3MM

- 675 Confirmed | 16 Dead in CA
- NY, N. CA, WA the 3 states most impacted.
- Including the VA, San Diego has 8,500 hospital beds.
- Dr. Nick has been meeting with hospital and company CEOs in partnership effort.
- Hospitals are taking preparatory steps so that Operating Rooms can be converted into ICUs if needed.

- The majority of deaths in Italy involved 80+ year old and those with preexisting conditions.
- Governor Newsom’s claim that 25MM infections and 1MM deaths is a worse-case scenario of modeling predictions. - - This will depend on the decisions of the people of CA -hence the Governor's order this evening.

- Most people who get it experience mild cold to flu like symptoms.
- Dr. Nick is keeping 6 feet away from everyone possible and recommends the same for everyone.
- The current environment could last for a couple months more at least.

- China used martial law to reign this in. We are not. He first heard about this in China on January 4th. March 17th was the first time China reported no new cases, if that is transparent reporting.

- No current data on recover rates, but recommended this site from John Hopkins for data:

https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/map.html

It’s the best tracking site available – sobering as well.

Johns Hopkins experts in global public health, infectious disease, and emergency preparedness have been at the forefront of the international response to COVID-19.

Our Story

Imagine if a historic Boston tavern could be transported ~200 years into the future and relocated to sunny San Diego, keeping its architecture, warmth and community feel intact while upgrading to an acclaimed 21st century menu of New England-inspired coastal cuisine and craft cocktails.

That’s exactly what you’ll find at Green Dragon Tavern & Museum in Carlsbad -- a one-of-a-kind gathering place and historic dining experience for families, friends and neighbors of all ages.

Every dish on our diverse menu is expertly curated by Executive Chef, Josef Felts, with a focus on seasonal, locally sourced and sustainable ingredients. Craft cocktails, wines and 20 rotating beers on tap pair perfectly with our savory fare. Family owned and centrally located off the Interstate 5 freeway, Green Dragon is open for curbside pickup and delivery from noon to 8 pm and dine-in service from 3 to 8 pm Wednesday through Sunday. We’re also pleased to offer the best Happy Hour in North County San Diego from 3 to 6 pm and with daily specials, 50 percent off all bottles of wine on Wednesdays and $4 IPAs on Thursday, featuring a variety of IPAs exclusively from San Diego and North County breweries, you will surely find something to love.

Unlike any other Southern California dining destination, Green Dragon guests are invited to travel back in time to the days when Samuel Adams, Dr. Joseph Warren, Paul Revere and other Founding Fathers met in secret at the original Green Dragon Tavern in Boston. Our complimentary-admission, in-house museum exhibits a private collection of documents and antiquities from the colonial and Revolutionary War eras to provide visitors with a unique opportunity to learn more about our nation's founders and to reconnect with and celebrate American history.

The two-story Green Dragon also offers flexible, elegant event space with a capacity ranging from 25 to 400 guests. Our location, best in class wi-fi, ample parking, audio-visual capacity and unparalleled service make us an ideal location for your next social event, corporate meeting, bridal shower, baby shower, rehearsal dinner or wedding. Our friendly and experienced event team is always on hand to assist with the planning and execution of your special event. With the vision of Chef Felts and the flawless execution of our full service kitchen, we can create the perfect menu for your event.

Thanksgiving buffet!
We visited the Green Dragon Tavern today... wow! What a a cool place! It's like they transported us to New England. We had a great burger and a beer for 15 bucks! What a beautiful restaurant and museum combo... we really enjoyed it. :)
Great Food and Wine . The Atmosphere was nice .
Hi! Will you be doing anything special for Easter Sunday, like brunch? I would love to visit and see this place!!
You used to be one of our favorite spots for bacon wrapped scallops and lobster mac 'cheese. My son chose your restaurant last week as his "last meal" before starting school. Imagine how disappointed he was...all of us were...when we couldn't find bacon scallops on the menu. I'm not understanding why they were removed...you serve scallops, and you offer bacon on you burgers...why not slap the two together and make your customers happy? Sorry, but we won't be back.
Loved it. Great Shepherd's Pie with an amazing sauce.
No more refills on clam chowder on bread bowl??? Basically cut the amount of soup by half!!!!
