Even though it's still July, we're already getting misty-eyed over the inevitable end of summer. After all, does anyone ever feel like they've had enough beach time come September? Don't fret if you're all out of vacation days, though — we found an easy way to fake that feeling of a seaside escape. Step 1: Toss on a breezy dress and so-chic sandals. Step 2: Head to Azur, the new Penn Quarter outpost from chef Frederik de Pue. The lofty, light-filled space feels like a swank Mediterranean vacation spot, and the menu is pure delight for seafood lovers. Read on to learn how to make summer just a little more endless.
