Best food-to-view ratio? Cast your votes!

Does one always have to trade off a good food for a good view (perhaps of the water, but not of the sidewalk)? So far, the only places i can think of where you don't is Meritage and Dante. And if you go to Meritage at night, you really can't see the water, since there's no outdoor seating. Although Bridgeman's in Hull is right across from the water, there's not REALLY a water view, as far as I'm concerned. I'm NOT including Henrietta's Table, since it's view is of concrete. So what do you think, Hounds?

      Splash Food/View = 3/9. Service is improving though but then it had nowhere else to go.

      1. re: stamfood

        i disagree. i think 5/9 is a more accurate ratio. spalsh has some good options if you order well- crackling calamari salad, duck, chocolate pagoda. the wasabi mashed spring rolls are awesome.

        i heard the rowing club in westport has a nice menu that is now open to the public and the view is supposed to be nice...

        1. re: missmar79

          Ok, the calamari sal is delicious. Still your choices make for a very limited dining menu ... and granting your 5/9, we're not looking at a great ratio.

          Thinking now about the calamari, MisMar, I'll ante up to 4/9.

            Meh..Sesuit IS okay, but honestly, its just a decent clam shack. Nothing more. And the view isn't all that either, just a jetty entrance to a harbor and a gas dock. It really doesn't belong n the same class as all the other mentions here, does it?
