Spice Bar Restaurant
Set on the Esplanade, this acclaimed Asian-fusion restaurant overlooks the Pacific—and even has some outdoor balcony seating. Edamame, "drunken chicken" and coconut-lime-cured fish are offered among the small plates, while Sichuan-pepper duck shines among the entrées. Spoiled for choice? Try tasting menus that start at five courses and range up to 10 courses.
