Ocean Prime is the new show piece of Larimer Square. On the corner of 15th and Larimer. The decadent design and amazing decorum and lighting immediately draw you in. Once inside you realize your in for a treat. Whomever came up with this design concept truly deserves an award. I am gonna hereby declare this the Vato G’s first ever Interior Design Masterpiece award. I am gonna give you an excerpt from their website…
“Ocean Prime is the culmination of a creative exercise we started in 2006 to define the best in culinary, beverage, service and atmosphere. Our team wanted to pair a great steakhouse with a great seafood restaurant. We imagined a place where our guests are greeted by name and partner with us in adventures of great food, wine and libation. In August 2006 we opened Mitchell’s Ocean Club in our hometown, Columbus, Ohio.
As we expanded our Modern American supper club concept outside Ohio, we renamed it Ocean Prime, with “Prime” reflecting our commitment to serving the highest quality steak, seafood, handcrafted cocktails and award-winning wines. We’ve opened seven locations to much success, and we look forward to opening our eighth location, Atlanta, in fall 2011.
Ocean Prime was not developed overnight. Our executive chef teams traveled, tasted and compared notes to refine a menu that would ignite curiosity and surpass expectations. Our operations teams sourced the finest and the freshest ingredients to elevate every plate that leaves our kitchen. We curated a Wine Spectator-honored wine list for perfect pairings. And we poured energy with a fresh twist into the creation of our signature cocktails, expertly prepared by our well-trained bar chefs.
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 extraordinary experience to each and every guest. For us, the answer is ‘yes.’ What is your question?”
So having said that, its really true. The service inside of this place blew my mind. For an amazing time ask to sit in the section being served by “Dennis” He also deserves an award. He will make you realize your somewhere special if you hadn’t already arrived at that conclusion.
It’s often hard for me to answer a question like “who has the best steak in town” because in my opinion there are different kinds of the best. So I will give you my perspective. You know those steaks that melt in your mouth when you eat them? The ones that are spiced just to perfection? The ones that you wouldn’t even dream of putting any steak sauce on? The kind you never forget? Yes, they have those here. I am a New York man myself but at the suggestion of the staff I tried the Filet Mignon. Amazing. I had a side of Creamed Spinach with Smoked Bacon and an appetizer of Ahi Tuna Tartar with Avocado and Ginger Ponzu. Everything was cooked to perfection and tasted amazing.
So the service is amazing, the food is six star, the atmosphere is other worldly, (it almost feels like your on a cruise ship), and the location is so very happening. The view of the street down below when your on the second floor eating dinner is second to none. They also have an extensive private dining room that is available for small and large parties as well as presentations and the like with all the latest electronics and displays. This place spared no expense. Cameron Mitchell I am very impressed.
The Vato G would definitely recommend Ocean Prime confidently to anyone who wanted to go downtown and be dazzled. They also serve lunch! It is also smack dab in the middle of the Denver night life with 25 night clubs down the street and comedy works 50 feet away as well as shopping and the 16th street mall a block away. Put this restaurant on your to do list. 🙂
