What we love about Aquarius: That’s easy, the million-dollar, panoramic views from the restaurant’s oceanside perch. The food―all locally grown or caught, organic, and seasonal―is pretty darn good, too. There’s a certain refined elegance to both the menu, which predominantly features seafood cleverly divided into “hooks” (appetizers), “lines” (soups and salads), and “sinkers” (entrées), and the sleek but airy decor―all the better for focusing on the food’s freshness and that killer view.
