A water view highlights dining out at many Long Island restaurants. Here are three where you'll find it -- and eat well too.
EAST HAMPTON POINT, 295 Three Mile Harbor Rd., East Hampton; 631-329-2800
Three Mile Harbor glistens at sunset and sometimes all day. East Hampton Point provides the perch, plus tuna crudo, a local seafood stew, day-boat halibut, and strip steak with heirloom tomatoes.
BAY VUE, 854 S. Wellwood Ave., Lindenhurst; 631-991-3370
Look onto Great South Bay while relishing the lobster roll, lobster macaroni-and-cheese, linguine with white or red clam sauce, fish-and-chips, fried calamari and the raw bar.
LA PLAGE, 131 Creek Rd., Wading River; 631-744-9200
You're across the street from the beach at La Plage, where the cuisine takes in English pea-and-mint ravioli, duck confit with chive risotto, achiote-grilled swordfish, and crème brûlée with berries.
