Primed on Piedmont

"The question, when expanding a successful chain to a restaurant-rich city like Atlanta, is not 'Is it needed?' Does anyone really need another jumbo crab cake, creamy lobster bisque, meltingly delicious strip steak with blue cheese crust, cheesy potatoes au gratin and 10-layer carrot cake, all in a swanky setting with a red-carpet entrance, piano bar and live music six nights a week? Perhaps the better question is, 'Ocean Prime, what took you so long?'"

…That’s just a taste of the deliciousness contained in our review of Buckhead's newest steak-and-seafood hot spot, which opened on Piedmont Road Oct. 25—and we just can't get enough of it. Not hungry yet? Well, the restaurant's glass-enclosed dining rooms, lively bar, wine towers and porthole-style mirrors provide the ultimate setting for scrumptious dishes like fried shrimp with seedless watermelon and lobster coleslaw, Chilean sea bass with Champagne truffle sauce, and bittersweet chocolate-and-peanut butter mousse pie, which are just a few of the highlights writer Connie Dufner expands on in the piece she's penned for JEZEBEL's November issue. To learn more, pick up our November issue, hitting newsstands next week—or flip through the digital edition—and you'll soon understand why Ocean Prime's delectable fare and sexy ambience have us ready to sail off into the sunset. 3102 Piedmont Road, 404.846.0505,
