Drawing on nearly two decades of success at its former location, the new Oceana offers bold American seafood in a modern and elegant space on W. 49th St., just west of Rockefeller Center. Our celebrated cuisine is driven by fresh, seasonal ingredients from the global pantry, and has earned a Michelin Star for four years in a row.
A pure and natural ethos characterizes the cooking style of Executive Chef Ben Pollinger. Bold flavors emerge from his innovative compositions, while simple preparations of whole fish and other offerings subtly tease the palate. Impeccable attention is paid to each element of the meal, with housemade breads, condiments, and smoke cured fish created and presented under his direction.
Sommeliers are on hand to recommend tasteful complements from our list of more than 850 curated wines, and our mixologists delight in fashioning exotic signature cocktails with a dazzling balance of flavors. Sumptuous and visually arresting desserts from Executive Pastry Chef Colleen Grapes conclude the dining experience on a sublime note.
Our spacious venue provides a variety of options for lunch, dinner, cocktails, and small bites. Just steps from the theatre district, we offer a three-course prix fixe pre/post theatre menu and can pace the service of your meal to suit your plans in any of the restaurant’s distinct areas. The Cafe offers casual seating with a lavish marble Raw Bar as its centerpiece, showcasing the day’s selection of the freshest seafood. Also featured are a vibrant full-service cocktail Bar and three unique settings for private dining in addition to the main dining room: The Wine Room, The Grand Salon, and The Chef’s Table. During the warmer months, The Cafe extends outside to our refreshing Patio, while The Park at Oceana provides sultry outdoor seating for private events under a canopy of sky.
With an ambience of grandeur and intimacy, exceptional cuisine, and attentive service, Oceana satisfies diners of all appetites. Experience the seduction of seafood and more at the new Oceana.
