  1. What kind of food/ price point are you looking for? Is the view important?

    1. Basilic. Go there even if it breaks the bank (it's high end but not exorbitant). I have eaten there many times and have always had a great meal. It's not on the menu, but ask if the chef will do seafood risotto - really good!

      1. Eat where John Wayne used to eat at the Arches. Reasonable food but a great experience.

        1. Picante Martins n Marine Avenue, the Main drag has good Mexican - their chicken soup is great.
