The spectacular waterfront view alone makes a trip to Ocean in Bayville a must during the warm weather. Within the Crescent Beach Club (the location of Pulse’s annual First Taste of Summer party on May 10), Ocean serves up a bunch of favorites. Think seafood dishes like lobster, crab cake and shrimp bisque, as well as some classics like filet mignon and Caesar salad. Even better? The upscale restaurant has a popular outdoor sushi bar (reopening on May 17) serving special rolls from the sushi master who goes by Mr. Lee. Plan a trip and make sure to dig into any of these favorites below.
What’s a Long Island restaurant without a delectable seafood dish? This one takes it to the next level mixing a favorite pasta with mussels, clams, shrimp and calamari. Diners also get a choice of fra diavolo, scampi or vodka sauce.
Salad and seafood lovers, this one is for you. Ocean mixes a sesame crusted tuna with frisse, julienne romaine, nicoise olives, egg yolk aioli, tomatoes, anchovy powder, haricot vests and evoo. It’s also gluten-free.
Organic Free-Range Chicken
Those who aren’t craving seafood or meat can opt for this creamy poultry dish instead. Served with mushroom risotto cake and baby carrots, the organic free-range chicken is made more flavorful with a marsala cream sauce.
Another tuna dish worth digging into, the ahi tuna is a perfect mix of fish and veggies. It comes with wasabi pea and coriander crusted, sautéed vegetables and is thrown over rice noodles. The orange ginger glaze wasabi aioli also adds a special kick.
Creative, fresh and flavorful—the sushi bar at Ocean is a hit. The menu features popular roll options like lobster and spicy crunch tuna, as well as original creations from Mr. Lee. There’s crudos, sushi and sashimi to boot. Customers have called it some of the best sushi they’ve ever had.
