We visited the Blockade Runner about a year ago and had a great evening in spite of some intermittent rain that forced us inside. The indoor restaurant is very good, but we'd like to try to sit outside (see picture above) where you can feel the breeze and hear the nearby ocean. Hopefully it won't rain this time or be too hot ... keep your fingers crossed.
It's truly a fine setting with great food and ambiance. There is an outdoor Sea Escape Pool Bar where we will first meet at 6 PM and then sit down for dinner at 6:30 outside (weather permitting) at the East Oceanfront Dining Room.
Here's how they describe themselves:
"EAST Oceanfront Dining’s award-winning creative fare is served in a beautiful oceanfront garden setting. This chef-driven restaurant reflects the passions of Executive Chef Jessica Cabo and her talented culinary team. Her vegetarian and seafood-centric dishes reflect influences from California, Mexico, Asia and the Mediterranean. Enjoy elegant dining indoors or outside on a canopied garden deck.
Settle in for an evening of coastal food culture with fresh local seafood, produce from our own garden scape and others harvested from local purveyors. A great selection of wines, spirits, and local craft beers add to your dining experience."
