The oceanfront Marine Room has been a fine dining French restaurant since 1941, but in 2021, a new chef took over and really made this place a destination for sustainable seafood. The updated menu is full of finely executed surf and turf with unexpected elements that probably require some tweezer action, like caviar-topped salmon tartare in mini cones, hamachi crudo in coconut aguachile, and wagyu with onion ash and sweet drop peppers. It’s the place to go for a romantic sunset dinner.
