The first major selling point for Westward is that the restaurant can be approached from the water—regulars stop by on boats, kayaks, or paddleboards and tie up on the dock during dinner. That said, it’s also entirely worthy destination for landlubbers—the menu is inspired by the Northwest, with a heavy emphasis on fresh oysters and seafood dishes (like albacore crudo, salmon gravlax, and black cod) that rotate daily. Little Gull, their market concept next-door, is one of the best places in the city to get fresh market fish for home cooking—though it’s equally nice for a glass of wine and an appetizer. In the evenings, they offer drink service at the Adirondack chairs around the fire pits.
