Oceana, New York, NY

Oceana Restaurant Review

: Nautical-themed Oceana is set in an airy and spacious room. Chef Ben Pollinger chooses pristine ingredients from the sea that are so fresh, you’ll swear the place is slowly rocking back and forth. Menu items include complex taro-wrapped dorade accompanied by a savory coconut-cilantro curry, tamari-glazed steelhead salmon, General Tso's lobster, seared yellowfin tuna, and a two-person shrimp and oyster paella. It's enough to make you hope the ship never docks. Consider indulging in pecan pie, an orange dreamsicle parfait or cookie plate for dessert. Make selections from the global wine list, local draft and bottled beers or classic cocktails.
