Named after a 1979 James Bond film and once one of the most notable restaurants in Pacific, Moonraker was shuttered for many years. Then, a couple of ambitious restauranteurs revived and modernized Moonraker. Today, Moonraker once again lures lovers and sea-loving visitors from far and wide.
Moonraker, located within the Best Western Lighthouse on Rockaway Beach Avenue has returned to its original location, the latest project from brothers Shawn and Gary McNamara and Executive Chef Jason Yeafoli offering modern seafood dishes in addition to caviar, oysters, chilled crab, lobster and prawns, in a renovated space overlooking the ocean.
It sits on a lovely piece of coastal property, and to complement the food from executive chef Jason Yeafoli is a new cocktail list created by consultant Victoria D'Amato-Moran.
