Describe your favorite restaraunt in the world. As usual, I do not have just one answer! I have a few favorite restaurants. Two of them are seafood restaurants on Long Beach Island, New Jersey. They are both in the town of Ship Bottom, too. One is Ship Bottom Seafood. For all I know, the owner may have moved on to other things. The last time we were there a number of years ago he epressed that he might. He was a bit like the Soup Nazi on Seinfeld, but not to that etreme. He served the BEST broiled scallops on the planet —and his lobster bisque was amazing, too. It was just a little place and it had a fish market right by the restaurant entrance, too.
The other restaurant is The Wheelhouse. That is a bit farther down the block–and faces the ocean. The restaurant is larger than Ship Bottom Seafood, and the view is prettier. The scallops are terrific, as well. But for atmosphere and coziness, Ship Bottom Seafood Restaurant has it beat…. Now I am hungry for seafood and missing LBI
