The restaurant is situated on the corner of JFK Blvd. and Pleasure Avenue and overlooks the ocean and Excursion Park. La Finestra Ristorante will be open daily from 5-10:30pm featuring steak, seafood and pasta dishes on its menu. Some of its signature dishes will include the lamb porterhouse, branzino, and the Pasta Finestra. Reservations can be made online at or through Open Table.

Soulrise Yoga Studio

Soulrise Yoga Studio at 3708 Landis Ave. opened this summer under ownership of yoga guru Emily MacLeod. Members of the SICCCR, Mayor Len Desiderio and family and friends joined MacLeod for a ribbon cutting ceremony over Memorial Day weekend. Growing up in Bucks County, PA, MacLeod is a graduate of Temple University and Archbishop Wood High School. She grew up spending summers in Sea Isle with her large Irish Catholic family for as long as she can remember and is now looking forward to owning a business here. While walking past Heritage Surf Shop one day she noticed the "for sale" sign and decided it was the perfect time. Soulrise Yoga Studio will be open daily offering morning and afternoon classes and a variety of yoga styles including vinyasa, power and hatha. The full schedule of classes is available online at
