OCEAN PRIME: FOOD PHOTOS, MY RECOMENDATIONS & LINK TO PHILLY MAG OPENING NIGHT PARTY

From
their compelling menu, to imaginative cocktails, a superb wine list,
and impeccable service, Ocean Prime is the perfect place to celebrate
and entertain with friends. As pledged by representatives of this Cameron Mitchell Restaurant,
“When you enter Ocean Prime, our associates have an hour or two to take
you somewhere wonderful and transform your day with their genuine
hospitality. Our passion is to deliver an extraordinaryexperience to
each and every guest.” In my book, they kept to this promise and
definitely exceeded all of the local hype. – See more at:

Take a seat
I should have put a quarter next to this baked potato, it was huge

Crab Legs, Colossal Shrimp Cocktail, Crisp Wedge of Iceberg, and Red Onion, Smoked Bacon, Grape Tomatoes, Bleu Cheese, Cabernet Buttermilk Dressing

Point Judith Calamari, Sweet Chili Sauce, Candied Cashews (This is also on their Happy Hour Menu and we might become good friends.)
 
 I ate this Friday night, an 8oz petite steak. It was delicious.
 Saturday night I had the twin lobster tails. Very good, but the asparagus, out of this world especially since it’s not in season. Where’d they get it?

 I fell in love with the luxurious supper club booths at Butcher & Singer, as you’ll recall when I covered their opening a few years back. What I didn’t mention in my Philly Mag column, is OP has really captured the intimacy of dining this way. Craig LeBan is going to love it, they have used material through out the building to absorb sound. You can actually hear your dinner partner from across the table, even with the chattering of hundreds of people around you. Now that’s something to write home about.

Mary Pat Kessler with her orchid martini. It’s pretty delicious.

 Nick Lauria, executive sous chef.

The mezzanine level

Make sure you check out the Wall of Fame, which leads to the bathroom. I took all the photos that will fill these frames.

I forgot to get a decent photo of one of my favorite sides and I highly recommend
 Jalapeño Au Gratin, Sliced Potatoes, Aged Swiss
People also raved over –
Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes, Sweet Corn Cream, Succotash
Crème brûlée, that Chocolate Peanut Butter Torte and Cheesecake

Baked Alaska as mom used to make
I know this seems like a lot of pixs at one sitting, but I wrote a completely different story that I hope you’ll read at Philly Mag – Thanks & please like the page over there.
