Give The Extravagant Gift Of An At-Home Dinner Party With Ocean Prime

Imagine the opportunity to have a professional chef come to your home to prepare an elegant multi-course dinner for you, all from the comfort of your own kitchen. That’s just what Ocean Prime Boston, one of our highlighted haute spots, is offering for the holidays. All you have to do is round up three of your closest friends and they will do the rest.

Simply call the oceanfront restaurant and tell them a date that works for you and they will prepare a tasting menu from start to finish complete with welcome champagne toast, gin cocktails and wine pairings. Dishes include hand passed Sevruga caviar blinis, Sonoma goat cheese ravioli, ahi tuna Rossini (shown below), Hudson Valley seared foie gras and an eight-ounce butter poached filet mignon with Dutch Harbor king crab.

This luxe dinner package, which is available for $2,500, is available through the end of the year.

We caught up recently with General Manager Nick Foley to discuss the increased popularity of at-home, chef prepared, multi-course dinners.

How was this concept conceived?

The concept of the luxe, at-home dinner experience from Ocean Prime was created by our culinary team. This kind of experience brings people together and creates stories that last much longer than any material gift. With that in mind, we wanted to provide our guests with a gift that can live on in their recipient’s memory versus on their shelf. We’re also always looking for creative ways to showcase just how talented our chefs are, so we thought this was a perfect opportunity to get them out of the kitchen and into the homes of Ocean Prime’s raving fans.

What type of client are you targeting?

We expect this to be a hit with returning guests who want to experience the decadence of Ocean Prime in the comfort of their homes, but we would also love for the gift to be given to those who have never dined with us before. We can’t think of a better way to introduce our signature genuine hospitality to future guests. This up-close-and-personal experience really showcases the high caliber of our associates’ capabilities.

What can someone expect when booking?

You can expect an Ocean Prime chef to visit your home to prepare a tasting menu for up to four guests. This will include five courses of indulgent seafood and prime steaks paired with elegant cocktails and selections from Ocean Prime’s Wine Spectator-honored wine list – think Sevruga caviar, gin cocktails, and butter poached filet mignon. The dinner can be personalized to suit any dietary requirements, and our chef will be sure to capture the diners’ attention with show-stopping preparation in the kitchen. We are excited to offer this experience to our existing guests and hopefully meet a few new ones along the way!
