In Oakdale, boaters can dock, dine, and repeat. 

View is offering 21 boat slips on a first come, first serve basis, with lunch service beginning at 12 p.m. Monday through Friday and 11 a.m. on Sunday. The restaurant’s menu includes a seafood-heavy set of selections, including yellowfin tuna tartare with ginger, avocado, sriracha, and scallions; crispy Thai calamari with peanuts, cilantro, and lime; Baja-style fish tacos made with fresh Montauk fluke and served with pico de gallo and guacamole; and a New England-style lobster salad roll on buttered bread. Although even the seafood-averse will find great joy in the Peking duck tacos with avocado and Hoisin sauce, or the Monterey chicken club with applewood smoked bacon and swiss. 

View, of course, is known for its stunning view of the water, and the best way to enjoy that view is with a bottle of wine. View is promoting their expansive wine list with Wine Down Wednesdays, which will run all day and night every single Wednesdays. Diners can enjoy half-priced bottles of select wines while they eat from the a la carte menu. 

The other star of the restaurant is the sushi menu, which features sushi and sashimi a la carte, hot and cold appetizers, classic rolls and hand rolls, sushi bowls, and, of course, specialty rolls. View’s specialty rolls are particularly ambitious. The Tuna Trio is stuffed with spicy tuna, and then topped with a combination of tuna, white tuna, panko, and eel sauce. And the Banana Ebi Special is more than a single mouthful: shrimp tempura, avocado, and spicy kanikama on the interior gives way to an exterior of fresh banana, soybean paper, spicy white sauce, and eel sauce. Can’t quite wrap your mind around it? I’m sure there’s a Wine Down Wednesday pairing that’s perfectly suited for this alien creature of a roll. All you have to do is find it.
