Breakfasts with a sea view

As a history teacher in the "off season" at Ocean City High School, Angelo Di Bartolo is well aware of the legacy of Richard's Grill, the once popular '80s beach grill snugged into a wooden shack tucked behind the dunes where North Street hits the sand. There have been a long list of short-lived pretenders in Richard's wake ("half a dozen at least!" Di Bartolo says) but the chef and his chef and partner, Jim Aller, now in their fourth season, have it down with simple breakfasts (and lunches) done right with good ingredients and a priceless view from the wooden booths that ring the exterior. Yes, the fruit-laden pancakes, waffles, and hefty pan-cooked omelets filled with Italian sausage and provolone cheese are satisfying. But with waves lapping at the beach just one winding sandy path away, they taste even better.

Omelets, $7.25-$9.95, Northend Beach Grill, 9 Beach Road Ocean City, 609-432-9267.
