Great viewÂ? no, awesome viewÂ? and okay food. Directly across the street from the beach, on the second floor, Lulu's has perhaps the best ocean panorama of any bar or resturant on that stretch of A1A. The breeze that fills this open-air eatery tends to remain stiff -- nice for the A/C bill, not so kind to plastic cups. Daytime is usually filled with tourists and undiscriminating locals shopping at BeachPlace, and nights can turn a tad frat-boy bacchanalian. (This is the place to order a rum runner, with a floater, in a "souvenir bikini glass" shaped like a headless lady's body.) The New Orleans-style menu items are adequate, but the oysters are pre-shucked, though the fried alligator remains a true treat. You'd never bring a Louisianan here and expect her to be impressed, but when you absolutely have to wolf down a shrimp po-boy, Lulu's is right here.
