Quogue, New York
September 3, 2003
We were enticed by the outdoor terrace -- it is so inviting with wrought iron tables and market umbrellas. It was a hot late afternoon and we would have enjoyed a drink there, but the drawback . . . plastic cups, the throwaway kind, not even acrylic ones!!!! Not at all appealing for a chilled martini on a hot afternoon.
We instead decided to enjoy the best martini that "Beantown" has to offer in the air-conditioned lounge. They're seved in frozen glasses and a bargain at $8 each. Considering the area that the Oceania is in -- very touristy -- the food and drinks are very reasonable. Servers are very pleasant and the views incredible. Definitely a good spot to spend a few quiet moments.
