The kids are staying home and ordering in (they’re actually probably doing keg stands on the beach with a couple of lifeguards and 10 of their friends who are back for the summer), and you want to go somewhere for a nice date night. Check out Yellowfin, a small, BYOB seafood spot in Surf City with candlelit tables and white tablecloths. Start with the crispy flatbread topped with slices of avocado and local tuna or the fried green tomato covered with a ton of lobster meat, and then get the scallops and risotto or perfectly-cooked halibut with lump crab.
