Oceana menu recommendations?

steakrules85 | Apr 27, 2010 01:26 PM

I am considering going to Oceana with my father this weekend after reading the latest rave reviews and was wondering which dishes on the current menu are best. Also, my very good friend RGR has commented that she has had great meals there since the new location has been open. I respect her opinion a whole lot, so I expect that it will be wonderful.

Glancing at the menu it seems to be quite daunting with so many choices. Honestly, everything sounds really delicious. We love King crab but I do not see it listed as an entree. However, I see that you can get that as an appetizer so we will probably split that and the gnocchi with crab, morels, and peas (how can that be bad?).

Entrees are where it gets difficult. There is nothing like a big old lobster and Oceana has them in 1.5,3, and 5 pounds. I am considering getting a 3 pound and maybe another entree so that we can sample a couple dishes. Perhaps the crispy bass, grilled dorade, or dover sole.The roasted stuffed branzino for 2 with mushrooms, spinach, and mushrooms looks and sounds incredible also. I found some pics here http://www.aarongraubart.com/index.ph... and

Any other recs would be greatly appreciated.
