The excitement at Staten Island’s South Beach isn’t just under the boardwalk. This seafood spot sits right on the planks, complete with sand, glistening ocean and majestic Verrazano Bridge views. The coveted seats are under the shady umbrellas outside, while tall ceilings, long windows and curving colored glass accents mark the interior. Settle in with a South Fin sushi roll, crispy fried eel and soft avocado topped with a refreshing sliver of peach, or light gnocchi stuffed with artichoke buoying a shrimp, asparagus and roasted tomato sauce. The lobster roll could use less mayo, but a mellow chai tea crème brûlée presents a new take on a classic dessert.
