Most restaurants with priceless views treat food as something of an afterthought. Not so at Staten Island’s South Fin Grill, where sweeping looks at the Atlantic Ocean and Verrazano Bridge can’t distract from first-rate cuisine. Meals are served in an airy space, with double-height ceilings. A serpentine channel of blue glass connects a bar area with three rows of intimate tables, leading into a main dining space that faces the ocean. On the far side of the glass, outdoor tables are planted right on the boardwalk, a few feet away from the sands of South Beach. The clear focus is on seafood, from a raw bar to grilled fish—often marinated in a simple Mediterranean blend of capers, garlic, lemon juice, and olive oil. Large sushi rolls show off still more fruits of the sea: The coconut shrimp roll combines cucumber and chili sauce with mango to offset the sweet. Presentations are colorful, and it’s hard to beat the cheesecake tasting for dessert (crustless cheesecake accompanied with an ice cream cone of cheesecake gelato).


Valet parking is available on-site, in addition to public parking in an adjacent lot.


Sunday brunch is served 11 a.m.–2 p.m.
