A regular winner of Wine Spectator awards, Ocean is known for its signature martinis served at a waterfall-accented bar, as well as for its fresh, contemporary seafood selections. Chef and owner George Reis opened Ocean in 2002 and followed up four years later with an adjoining sister restaurant, 26, which stays open late and serves bistro-style fare.
Signature Dish: Butter Poached Lobster
