Fodor's Expert Review The West Deck
Opened by the same people who own Pinchos, this new fun, friendly, wooden-decked grill joint offers casual fare like barbecue ribs and grilled shrimp by the dozen, as well as Caribbean bites like jerk wings, fried funchi (like a thick polenta) with Dutch cheese, and West Indian samosas. There are some surprisingly snazzy dishes too: the lobster/crab cocktail with red grapefruit and cognac cream drizzle is lovely. Their Beer-Ritas (a full bottle of beer served upside down in a big glass of margarita) are becoming legendary. Located at the base of the new Linear Park, it’s the perfect place for sunset views over the ocean as the cruise ships come and go.
