Ocean Prime Restaurant Review

: It's all about the presentation at Ocean Prime in the Seaport District, where "smoking" create-your-own shellfish towers and "smoking" cocktails turn heads in the massive dining room. There is a raw bar complete with sushi rolls and Dutch Harbor king crab legs. Choose from a flavorful bone-in filet, rib-eye, or New York and Kansas City strip. All of the steaks are seasoned and broiled at 1,200 degrees. An after-work crowd comes for a drink or a glass of bold ZD Wines Cabernet at the massive bar area that is almost always filled to capacity, so be sure to arrive early to ensure a seat. A separate lounge menu offers smaller bites, including prime sliders topped with bacon and caramelized onions; sea bass ceviche with avocado and mango; and teriyaki-marinated lamb lollipops. Sides are à la carte and large enough for two guests. We like the jalapeño au gratin, roasted Brussels sprouts and sautéed button mushrooms. Try the 10-layer carrot cake, which can be packed up to take home if you can't finish it.
