The views at this casual waterside eatery are spectacular, whether you eat on the deck or inside. The food is American with contemporary touches; seafood is emphasized. Pan-seared day-boat scallops, for example, are flavored with preserved lemons and carrot-ginger juice and served with couscous. The menu also includes duck, veal chops, and filet mignon. The earlier you come, the less rambunctious the crowd.
