The Landing

Type: Eclectic American
Location: 22 N. Main St., New Hope, PA, 18938

Many years ago, this place used to insist on reservations for dinner. It no longer does. The menu changes from time to time, in keeping with what's fresh and available from season to season. There's an outside bar and terrace which overlooks the Delaware River; it's nice in the summer, but is closed most of the rest of the year.

Stellar burgers and sushi-grade tuna is available there, even at 3pm. The lobster & shrimp spring rolls are to die for -- no weird dipping sauces here -- just wasabi-tartar and orange-sesame. It's perfect.

They have bivalves, if you like them, but I prefer fish that actually swims, or crustaceans. If you order seafood, you can be sure that it's fresh, and cooked properly. And, even if you eat inside, you can still get a nice river view, and a good selection of wine.

Pros: no reservations needed; easy parking somewhere within a block or so
Cons: it can get crowded on a Friday or Saturday Night
