The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene
Ocean in Bayville: First bites
Ocean gives you a beautiful view of Long Island Sound.
The remade restaurant in The Crescent Beach Club also delivers some very good seafood to go along with the pretty site, improving on its predecessor, the most recent version of the Pine Island Grill.
But it's invariably the location that will lure you here, especially at sunset. Have a drink, a few appetizers and enjoy the scenery.
You'll also like the glistening salmon crudo with snippets of scallion in a yuzu vinaigrette; and the trio of lobster sliders, which easily may be shared. The summer salad has tasty microgreens on a slablet of watermelon, perked up with a balsamic vinegar reduction.
And a mouthful or two of good chocolate mousse is the right finale.
Ocean, 333 Bayville Ave., Bayville; 516-628-3330.
