While the cocktails offered at a multitude of Ocean’s venues offer holiday festive-libations, we have several options at some of our restaurants that will bring the holidays to you, offering old favorites and even some new traditions.
Throughout the East Coast and all over America, The Feast of the Seven Fishes is a Christmas Eve tradition. This year, Dolce Mare is celebrating The Feast Of The Seven Fishes from Friday December 23rd through Saturday December 25th with a special five-course prix-fixe menu for $77.00 per person. The carefully selected menu is courtesy of Chef Juliano Cannuscio & showcases particular seafood dishes throughout each course. You can choose to start off with your meal with a decadent Crab Crostini With Robiola Cheese & Chive, then move onto a Yellowtail Tuna Crudo for your First Course. The next two courses consist of Lobster Risotto with Asparagus & Cherry Tomatoes and Cioppino (Cod, Calamari, Scallops, Shrimp, Fire Roasted Tomatoes, Spinach & Potatoes) respectively. Be sure you save room though; you will complete the meal with a zesty Limoncello Torte, complete with Mascarpone Cream & Fresh Berries. Reservations remain highly recommended to participate in this annual tradition, done only the way Chef Cannuscio could at Dolce Mare.
In addition to unique menu selections like unique Hawaiian Meatballs and and the Huli Huli Chopped Chicken Salad, Makai is ringing in the holidays and saying “Mele Kalikamaka” (the traditional Hawaiian holiday greeting) during Holidays at Makai. From December 24th through January 1st, you can enjoy the prix-fixe menu seasonal menu with a variety of options that offer something for everyone. Prime Rib with Hawaiian Seat Salt or, for a sweeter option, the Miso Marinated Salmon with Coconut Sticky Rice.
On December 29th and December 30th, Topgolf Swing Suite is hosting a Longest Drive Contest (sponsored by High Noon Sips and Gallowine of NJ). You can grab a hard seller and enjoy some great giveaways while you perfect your swing. For this competition, the best of three swings wins and the Grand Prize is well worth it; among other prizes, the winner receives a 2 hour complimentary bay reservation at Topgolf Swing Suites for up to six guests and dinner for 2 at Makai!
Either before or following your hearty meal, a cocktail is most definitely in order. Head over to The Lobby Bar for one of our Winter Drink Specials (through December 30th).
