Sierra Mar sits on the side of a sheer cliff, so diners are virtually suspended over the Pacific with just a glass wall between them and the ocean. The classic California cuisine is as outstanding as the view. For a real treat, go between December and May, when you can whale-watch while you dine. At the Post Ranch Inn, 47900 Hwy. 1, Big Sur, CA
