Ocean Prime, a high-end steak and seafood restaurant with 13 locations nationwide, is coming to downtown Naples.
The tony eatery, with other locations in Beverly Hills and Manhattan, and Florida spots in Tampa and Orlando, will occupy the space currently held by Avenue5 in the Inn on Fifth, according to a release. The Naples Ocean Prime will also provide catering and room service to Inn on Fifth Guests, the release adds.
“This agreement with Ocean Prime is a rare opportunity to raise the level of luxury at the hotel even higher, and to dramatically enhance the standard of fine dining on Fifth Avenue in Naples,” says Inn on Fifth and Club Level Suites owner Phil McCabe in the release. “I've had other opportunities to lease the Avenue5 space over the past two years, but had to consider how a change might impact hotel operations such as room service and banquet services. Upon being introduced to the Ocean Prime team, I knew immediately this would be a win-win for our hotel guests, Fifth Avenue and for Naples.”
The Inn on Fifth, in the middle of the Naples shopping district, underwent a $20 million expansion in 2013. Avenue5 opened then, with a more sophisticated menu and look then the previous tenant, the hotel's popular McCabe's Irish Pub, according to the statement.
Ocean Prime, part of Cameron Mitchell Restaurants, has a varied menu that, in addition to seafood, prime steaks and sushi, includes blackened snapper with corn spoon bread and jalapeno tartar; black truffle mac and cheese; and its famous 10- layer carrot cake with cream cheese icing and pineapple syrup.
