Everyone who knows me knows that when I travel shopping is the last thing on my mind. If I am not travelling for a photo session or work … more times than not the only other thing on my mind is the cuisine in the area. Now on my recent trip to Orlando (i know blahhhh), for New Year’s Eve celebrations with @makaregaia and @eddiebrown242 (< twitter handles) I came across a restaurant that I will be sure to never forget : OCEAN PRIME. Ocean Prime is nestled on West Sand Lake Road just a few minutes past the tourist heavy International Drive and with it’s top shelf steak house theme it definitely catches your eye.
We were pleasantly greeted by servers and had a pair of wait staff assigned to us, who were super helpful in explaining the menu and making suggestions for first time diners. The ambience of the restaurant was beyond gorgeous and the live musician was easily mistaken for a CD recording. The menu was a la carte’ and every description enticing and if it were not for the price I would have ordered everything on the menu 🙂
At the end of the day we ended up ordering the Lobster Bisque and Crab Cake for appetizers (pictured above) and the 16oz 30 day dry aged Rib Eye w/ Shrimp Scampi and the Wild King Salmon (pictures below) as entress. The food and service was a 10, though a little pricey it was well worth it and I would recommend to anybody who frequents the Orlando area.
