Keys to the Door: Owner Cameron Mitchell, general manager Brandon Davis.
Hop on Board: For Dallas-residing, modern-day Mad Men, Ocean Prime is the new supper club at which would-be Don Drapers must be seen sipping a Gentleman Jack Whiskey cocktail and devouring a New York strip. Owner Cameron Mitchell’s 10,000-square-foot culinary fantasy at Rosewood Court is his sixth Ocean Prime endeavor and the first in Dallas. Here, executive chef Sonny Pache is crafting his surf-and-turf menu, with such savory dishes as ahi tuna tartar with ginger ponzu and avocado, black-truffle macaroni and cheese, blackened snapper, and pork porterhouse with pommery mustard jus — all paired splendidly with the impressive wine list. For ambiance, think a contemporary version of the Queen Mary’s first-class dining room — circular lighting fixtures, candles in glass lanterns and washes of blue light. Along for the ride are Sammy Davis Jr. and Frank Sinatra, the namesakes of two of Ocean Prime’s private dining rooms.
