The restaurant's chef and owner, John Randall, employs more than 30 years of experience to grill up a wide variety of fresh seafood, certified Angus steak, and hearty sandwiches. Rev up digestion engines with one of John's starters, which include such Neptunian delights as fried calamari and smoked salmon pizza ($3.50–$9.50). Hearty entrees, such as prime rib, a swordfish sandwich, and scallop scampi, muscle out hunger ($9.95–$18.95), while a bevy of soups and salads stand on the sidelines, waiting to be tagged in if the bacon cheeseburger sprains its condiments ($4.50–$10.50). At the full bar, 15 different beers and more than 20 wines, several from California, supplement rising salivary floodwaters.

Boasting Michelin stars and three decades of culinary experience, executive chef Patrick Ponsaty pilots a team that creates upscale seafood and contemporary gourmet fare. Ponsaty?s colleagues include young chefs Gianina Dicicco and Mike Reidy, who graduated from Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts and the New England Culinary Institute. Dishes with modern, imaginative flavors include squid-ink risotto, veal cheeks with orange-blossom mousse, and hibiscus-pomegranate consomm?.

Vivo Rooftop Lounge proves that the view from the top is spectacular. The open-air lounge overlooks a stretch of waterfront park along the Pacific Ocean from a fourth-floor perch. It?s the perfect spot to catch the sunset over cocktails, especially since Vivo specializes in classic manhattans and the treetini, a mix of Veev a?ai spirit, pomegranate liquor, lime juice, and Sprite. In an effort to promote environmental sustainability, the restaurant will plant one tree for every treetini served.

A selection of gastropub dishes?available after 5 p.m.?rounds out the menu. Diners can enjoy burgers, pasta, and grilled seafood on plush, outdoor couches while roaring fire pits and patio heaters keep chilly ocean breezes and confused snowmen from Antarctica at bay.

Red C Lounge's no-frills show posters promise two things: chest-pounding beats and plenty of drinks. DJs deliver those beats in a variety of styles, delving into the jazz-influenced rhythms of deep house on Tuesdays or sampling the long-forgotten hooks of obscure soul or jazz on Rare Groove Fridays. The bartenders also offer a variety of drink service, sliding gin cocktails to customers seated on bar stools or providing bottle service for those who stake a claim to a table by draping their pants over a chair.
