NASHVILLE, TN – Southwest Value Partners and AEG, joint venture partners and co-developers of the Nashville Yards’ creative office and music venue, today announced an agreement with Cameron Mitchell Restaurants to open a new location of Ocean Prime, the nationally acclaimed seafood and steak restaurant, at Nashville Yards. Ocean Prime Nashville Yards is expected to open in summer 2025. It will be the first Cameron Mitchell Restaurants’ location in Tennessee, and 21st Ocean Prime location.
“We have been searching for the perfect location in Nashville for more than a decade,” said Cameron Mitchell, Founder and CEO of Cameron Mitchell Restaurants. “We look forward to our first venture in this great city and we are excited to bring Ocean Prime to the Nashville Yards project.”
Ocean Prime will be located at one of Nashville Yards’ key arrival points, on the corner of Church Street and Platform South at the base of the mixed-use development’s distinctive, creative office building. Plans for the more than 10,000 square-foot restaurant include over 370 seats and two large, covered patios spanning 2,400 square feet. Ocean Prime Nashville Yards will feature two private dining spaces designed to accommodate a variety of groups and events, from intimate gatherings of 8-12 to larger celebrations with 35-45 guests.
“As a destination restaurant celebrated for its exceptional atmosphere, outstanding food, and genuine hospitality, Ocean Prime is the ultimate gathering place and a natural fit for the uniquely special experience we are building at Nashville Yards,” said Southwest Value Partners Managing Partner Cary Mack. “We are thrilled to welcome Cameron Mitchell and his team to Nashville.”
Ocean Prime delivers an elevated experience with exceptional ambiance, a chef-curated menu, signature handcrafted cocktails, and a Wine Spectator-honored wine list. Every Ocean Prime restaurant is uniquely designed to capture the energy and elegance of each city, making it an unmatched destination to socialize, talk business, celebrate, and indulge. Dramatically designed and inspired by where the land meets the sea, the restaurant interiors balance raw materials with polished details to create a sophisticated yet comfortable atmosphere.
Ocean Prime’s menu is elaborate and modern, featuring indulgent seafood presentations, prime steaks, hand-rolled sushi, decadent side dishes, and house-made desserts. Each dish is carefully made from scratch by the chef team, emphasizing quality ingredients. Ocean Prime cocktails are inspired by classics and delivered with creativity.
“We are extremely excited to bring Cameron Mitchell and his upscale, highly successful fine dining concept to Nashville Yards,” said Ted Tanner, Executive Vice President Real Estate Development, AEG. “Ocean Prime is the perfect anchor to our collection of highly curated culinary offerings which feature a unique blend of local, regional and national brands and varied genres. It’s the perfect complement to the variety of entertainment and hospitality options and activities Nashville Yards will offer guests.”
Ocean Prime joins previously-announced tenants EVO Entertainment, a 48,000-square-foot, 12-screen experiential cinema and entertainment destination, and Iconix, a premium fitness club, in Nashville Yards’ 420,000-square-foot Class A+ creative office building.
