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.
