The Best Waterfront Restaurants In The US

Scroll through the slideshow for the best waterfront restaurants in NYC, LA, Miami, San Francisco and the Hamptons.

In the summer, there is nothing better than dining al fresco… except dining al fresco by the water, that is! After all, you can’t quite beat the feeling of a warm ocean breeze blowing in your hair as you sip on a delicious cocktail and people watch while wearing a pair of dark-framed, inconspicuous shades.

Enter Eyeconic, the brand we depend on to provide us with the eyewear we need to look chic by the water. Just image yourself lounging at Dave’s Gone Fishing in Montauk watching the picturesque sunset, wearing the Cole Haan rose gold aviators with leather-wrapped temples. Or sitting by the beach at Nobu Malibu in a pair of sand-colored sunnies with a gold metal brow bar by Anne Klein, hoping to spot a Kardashian or the latest Hollywood couple. Yes, waterfront dining is supremely better than dining anywhere else, potatoheads. Scroll through the slideshow above for our favorite waterfront spots in NYC, LA, Miami, San Francisco and the Hamptons.
