Restaurants With a View

Caitlin Olson | August 15, 2012 | Story

The first regatta of the America’s Cup World Series 2012–13 kicks off August 21–26 and goes from Piers 27 and 29 to the Golden Gate Bridge. While the sailors sweat, sit back and enjoy a cocktail and some yachting action.

La Mar Cebichería Peruana
Snag a seat outside on the 3,000 feet of open patio (actually a floating deck).
What to order: Lomo saltado and a pisco sour
Pier 1.5 (near Washington St.), 415-397-8880

Before you go watch the racers head under the Bay Bridge, check out the patio cam on the restaurant’s website, which lets you see the weather conditions in real time.
What to order: A glass of champagne and oysters on the half shell (duh)
399 the Embarcadero s (near Rincon Park), 415-284-9922

Scoma’s Restaurant
Yes, it’s touristy, but it’s also located on its very own pier. The view is almost 360 and there’s seating both indoors and out.
What to order: Sole stuffed with Dungeness crab and bay shrimp
588 Bridgeway (at Princess St.), Sausalito, 415-332-9551
