“After graduating from the CIA at Greystone and returning to Ohio to open my first restaurant 20 years ago, I always dreamed of opening a restaurant in New York City,” said Cameron Mitchell, founder and CEO of Cameron Mitchell Restaurants. “My passion for restaurants and the hospitality industry continues to grow each year, and I couldn’t be more proud to celebrate CMR’s 20th anniversary by bringing the Ocean Prime brand to Manhattan, the epicenter of the culinary world.”

Ocean Prime’s menu will pair the finest prime steaks with the freshest seafood and feature the highest quality ingredients in each made-from-scratch dish. The restaurant will evoke the timeless elegance of the supper club with warm woods, captivating lighting and a welcoming yet sophisticated atmosphere.

“For our first New York City location, we partnered with internationally renowned and Manhattan-based experiential design firm ICRAVE to create Ocean Prime’s alluring design,” said David Miller, executive vice president of Cameron Mitchell Restaurants. “ICRAVE also designed our Ocean Prime in Beverly Hills, Calif., which is scheduled to open this summer and will be our 11th location across the country.”
