One of the great things about dining outside Manhattan is that it gives you the chance to look back at the island in awe. And the perfect spot with the perfect view is the elegant Water's Edge Restaurant, just across the East River in Queens. While you look, transfixed, back at the Manhattan skyline, don't forget to order from the restaurant's impressive, seafood-heavy menu. Current highlights include cracked-peppercorn shrimp scampi and baby artichoke–crusted salmon.
