Happy Hour Prices Let You Test the Waters at Ocean Prime
Let Happy Eating point you to the best happy hour food menus around. This week, we're getting our fancy on for considerably less at Ocean Prime.
Where: Ocean Prime, 2101 Cedar Springs Road When: 4 p.m.-7 p.m Monday-Friday The Scene: Highbrow happy hour would describe it best. It's definitely not for the ball cap- and shorts-wearing drinkers. The "Blu" lounge, or inside bar, is full of suits conducting business after hours. For a more relaxed experience, go outside for happy hour on the beautiful wrap-around patio. It's getting hot, but the plethora of ceiling fans will keep the heat at bay. The Deal: Spicy salmon bowl $9, truffled deviled eggs $5, truffle kobe sliders $12, calamari $9, king crab empanadas $7, Parmesan broiled oysters $9. The Con: Prices aren't as cheap as at other happy hours in town, but you get what you pay for here. Eat: Fish tacos $8. Parmesan truffle tries $6. Lushworthy: Gin is in. Try the subdued, yet refreshing, cucumber gimlet $7.
Bottom Line: Dinner here is not cheap. If you want to try the food and experience the restaurant, happy hour is a perfect option.
