Ocean Prime Opens Second Denver Location
Ocean Prime, Denver’s modern American restaurant and lounge, today opened its second Denver location at the Belleview Promenade Center at 8000 E. Belleview Avenue in Greenwood Village. The new location, in the heart of the Denver Tech Center (DTC), will be open daily for lunch and dinner beginning at 11:30 a.m., serving guests an impressive menu of seafood and prime cuts of steak, signature cocktails and a Wine Spectator-honored wine list complimented by a captivating ambiance and a stunning and unique design.
“We’re excited to open a second Denver location of Ocean Prime in Greenwood Village today and increase the presence of Cameron Mitchell Restaurants in Colorado,” says Aaron Wesley, general manager at Ocean Prime DTC. “The Denver Tech Center area is growing rapidly and attracting more residents and relocating companies. We’re very happy to be part of this growth and to deliver our genuine hospitality to southeast Denver.”
Ocean Prime opened its first Denver location in Larimer Square in 2011, and guests are already familiar with the restaurant’s impeccable service, incredible prime steaks, and seafood and other made-from-scratch entrees, side dishes and handcrafted cocktails. “I’ve been with Cameron Mitchell Restaurants for over twenty years and was the original chef at our Ocean Prime Larimer Square location. I’m thrilled to come back home to Denver and can’t wait to share our fantastic menu with our guests in DTC,” says Michael Denton, executive chef.
The new 12,301-square-foot location, designed by Mark Knauer of Knauer, Inc., seats over 400 guests in the restaurant, bar and patio areas. There are four private dining rooms accommodating up to 60 guests. Knauer created a space that is warm, bold and lavish, and at the same time is evocative of Colorado culture, with tributes to the city, mountains and sports teams. From sculptures that tell the story of Denver and floor tiles cut from local stone, to the iron light fixtures that pay homage to Denver's modernity without losing its frontier roots, every single detail is thoughtfully curated.
Proceeds of grand opening day will benefit local non-profit Morgridge Academy at National Jewish Health, a free, Colorado Department of Education approved school at National Jewish Health which serves children grades K-8 with chronic illnesses. Morgridge Academy is the only school of its kind on a medical campus in the country, and its mission is to provide a safe, friendly, and healthy school environment committed to whole-child development.
