Though the Valley of the Sun is hundreds of miles from the nearest ocean, Ocean Prime’s extensive seafood selection brings the coast right here to City North in Phoenix.
Ocean Prime procures the freshest wild and naturally harvested fish available to create dishes such as Chilean Sea Bass with a Champagne Truffle Glaze, Alaskan Halibut with Summer Vegetable Saute and Plum Tomato Compote, and Blackened Swordfish with Wilted Spinach and Jalapeno Corn Tartar.
North Valley Magazine awarded Ocean Prime with it’s “Best Seafood” award in 2010 and 2011, while Arizona Foothills Magazine praised the restaurant’s fresh fish offerings, naming it “Best of Our Valley” in 2010-2012.
Ocean Prime’s wild and naturally seafood selection and raw bar are the highlight of their menu, the restaurant’s steakhouse offerings are not to be missed. Every steak at Ocean Prime–from the Petite Filet Mignon to the Kansas City Strip–are USDA Prime certified, and prepared in-house with the restaurant’s own seasonings.
For the perfect compliment to their juicy steaks, Ocean Prime moves away from the traditional “steak-and-potatoes” pairing with several exotic potato preparations. Lobster Mashed Potatoes offers a new take on “Surf and Turf,” while Candied Yams with Marshmallow Brulee will be sure to satisfy any sweet tooth. Even the Twice Baked with Vermont Cheddar and Applewood Bacon and Parmesan Truffle French Fries offer a new twist on old favorites.
To round out the meal, Ocean Prime’s list of “Indulgences” includes the house specialty–a decadent Ten Layer Carrot Cake topped with cream cheese icing and drizzled with pineapple syrup, as well as a house made assortment of sorbets; the perfect dessert for a hot Arizona evening.
During the daily Happy Hour (5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.), guests are welcome to enjoy several of Ocean Prime’s handcrafted cocktails, such as the Cucumber Gimlet and Berries and Bubbles, for just $6. Selections from the Wine Spectator award-winning by-the-glass wine list, domestic and imported beers, and selected appetizers are also available at a special price.
Of course, Ocean Prime– described as the Valley’s “Modern Day Supper Club”–would not be complete without its Blu Lounge, where guests can enjoy live piano performances nightly.
Whether you’re looking for an evening of music and cocktails, or an unforgettable meal featuring delicious steak and seafood, Ocean Prime is sure to become one of your favorite spots in North Phoenix.
