the Beach
One of my favorite places to have a bite to eat. Fresh seasonal offering perfect for the warm summer weather.  Menu highlights include famous Tortilla Soup; a fresh selection of Oysters, Shellfish and Wild Isles Salmon Crudo; Seared Ahi Tuna, either in a Nicoise Salad or with Couscous, Citrus and Avocado; a variety of Chef Vittorio's fresh Pastas and of course, Lobster Roll.
