If you are looking for a room with a view while you enjoy a special dinner, lunch, or brunch, 50 Ocean, right across from the beach in Delray, is a great restaurant for you. It’s within walking distance of the Seagate and Marriott, both frequent hotel choices of our part-time Palm Beach boat club members. 50 Ocean advertises a “luxurious setting, spectacular view, and the finest food,” and all of those descriptions are spot-on.
