gin and tonic in view of the ocean
Hit the broadwalk on Hollywood Beach for that G & T. If you dip south to the new Regent near Haulover, the View Bar has upscale grub (Kobe sliders) and an amazing view. The main dining room, 1Bleu is still working out some culinary kinks so for the $$$ I would stick to the bar menu.
AG is correct, you will not get any closer to the Ocean in SoFla than the Hollywood broadwalk. Very underrated spot. Unfortunately, fine dining options are limited but I wold recommend hitting Sugar Reef. Like their breakfast and lunch better than their dinner since I find it hit or miss. I think they have a full liquor license but not 100% certain so I would call.
