From its Insta-worthy Berries + Bubbles cocktail, Wine Spectator Awarded wine list, Smoking Shellfish Tower, Sea Scallops with Parmesan Risotto to Prime Steaks, Ten Layer Carrot Cake and Warm Butter Cake, there is a dish and beverage to please any palate.

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.

“We look forward to bringing our extraordinary Ocean Prime dining experience to Sarasota,” said Cameron Mitchell, Founder & CEO of Cameron Mitchell Restaurants. “Sarasota is close to my heart – and where I have vacationed with my family for nearly 20 years. With our exceptional menu, vibrant atmosphere, and dedication to genuine hospitality, this location promises to be a premier dining destination for both residents and visitors of Sarasota.”

The Quay Sarasota is an all-new waterfront destination overlooking the Sarasota Bayfront, in the heart the city’s Arts and Culture District. Being developed by Jacksonville, Florida-based GreenPointe Holdings LLC, Quay Sarasota will offer a carefully curated blend of luxury residential and upscale retail and dining in a scenic waterfront setting of natural beauty, eclectic architecture, and animated public spaces. The new 15-acre, mixed-use development will also feature a waterfront Central Quay park, boat slips along the yacht basin and boardwalk.

“GreenPointe Developers and Cross Lake Partners are thrilled to welcome Ocean Prime to Quay Sarasota Waterfront District,” said Grady Miars, President of GreenPointe Developers, LLC. “It was a natural choice to bring Ocean Prime’s award-winning elevated experience to Quay Sarasota’s scenic waterfront setting, and we know it will enhance the experiences of those who live, work, and play here. With a reputation for innovation, vision, it is our pleasure to create this remarkable waterfront destination and enrich the city’s vibrant Arts and Culture District.”

CMR has a significant presence in Florida, with more growth strategically planned within the state. The opening of Ocean Prime Sarasota will be the group’s sixth Florida restaurant overall and the fourth Ocean Prime in Florida (in addition to Tampa, Orlando, and Naples). Additionally, the Rusty Bucket Restaurant and Tavern, a sister-company to CMR, has a location in UTC.
