3 Must-Visit U.S. Waterfront Restaurants

3 Must-Visit U.S. Waterfront Restaurants, Flickr: JamesThere are few things I love doing more on my summer travels than enjoying a wonderful meal overlooking an expansive body of water. There’s something about the combination of amazing flavors and the calming effect of the water that never fails to put me in vacation mode. Here are my top three picks for excellent cuisine and breathtaking views.

Nobu
22706 Pacific Coast Highway
Malibu, CA 90265

Nobu is widely recognized as the best place to get sushi in Malibu. Located right on the ocean, you can expect top-notch service, classic Japanese dishes with a twist, and, of course, fabulous unobstructed views of the Pacific. Whether you’re a fan of “surf” or “turf,” Nobu’s signature dishes such as yellowtail sashimi with Jalapeño and black cod miso or Kobe beef with crispy shiitake mushrooms and sugar snap peas are sure to please. You’ll find the perfect pairing on the excellent wine list, or opt for a craft cocktail or tap beer--- then sit back and enjoy the sound of the waves rolling in.

Chelsea Brewing Company
Pier 59, Chelsea Piers
New York, NY

This huge (and hugely popular) brewery is located just off the scenic marina at Chelsea Piers. Pull up to the gorgeous mahogany bar and order whatever your heart desires. In addition to a selection of over 30 homebrewed beers (try the Checker Cab Blond or the Sunset Red), they serve a full range of wines and cocktails to go along with the impressive gourmet menu. After dinner, enjoy a cigar in the well-appointed lounge.

New Scenic Café

5461 N Shore Drive
Duluth, MN 55804

Located on the North Shore of Lake Superior (between Duluth and Two Harbors), New Scenic Café is one of the best restaurants in Minnesota (which is really saying a lot!). The café is housed in a charming structure tucked behind a lush garden filled with vegetables, herbs and edible blooms that are used in many of the dishes they serve. The impeccable menus change seasonally, and never disappoint (if it’s available, I highly recommend the cassoulet de Toulouse). After your meal, enjoy a cup of coffee outside and listen to the gentle waves of Lake Superior lapping against the shoreline rocks.

Smoke-free cities have no-smoking laws that apply to restaurants/bars, workplaces, public buildings/grounds and city parks (as well as other areas around the city). The cities on this list also have extensive anti-smoking campaigns, as well as programs to help people stop smoking.

  • The French phrase, “Bon appétit,” is often used as a substitute for the lack of an English phrase of the same meaning. While you might hear, “Enjoy your meal,” Bon appétit is one of the most common ways of greeting someone before they chow down. As most of the country gets ready to have a Thanksgiving feast, in case you have a few at your table who don’t speak English or French for that matter, it is useful to know how to wish someone a good meal in some of France’s neighbors. Here’s how to say essentially, “Good appetite,” in 15 European languages....read more

Indeed, there’s consensus among the Swiss that their country is the original destination for cold weather fun — and that this coming season marks the 150th anniversary of winter tourism....read more
