price range

$$$ (Entrees $31 and up)

This hillside restaurant in Lurin, a tiny town you pass through on the way to Gouverneur Beach, is a must-visit for those who prefer a place with a sense of history to the new and trendy. (Santa Fe has been around for decades, though the management team from Do Brazil just took over.) Better still, the windows are open to the breeze, and if you come during lunch service, you can see uninterrupted views down to the sea. Dinner is arguably more romantic, and more appropriate perhaps for the traditional French-Creole cuisine (escargot in garlic and parsley butter, dover sole, sautéed frog legs, spicy ocean hot pot, grilled spiny lobster right from the tank). Stay for coffee and an after-dinner drink—and get a taxi home.
