The former El Torito space in Beverly Hills is going upscale with the announced October arrival of Cameron Mitchell Restaurants' 11th Ocean Prime location, the first in Southern California. Described as “a modern American supper club,” Ocean Prime promises prime seafood and steaks in a contemporary space that spans 11,400 square feet and seats 350. The venue is divided into a main dining area, three private dining rooms, a piano lounge, and a covered terrace. Design elements by New York-based Icrave include exterior walls built from steel, wood and glass cubes, oak floors, exposed brick, leather seating, floor-to-ceiling glass doors leading to the terrace, and an internally illuminated bar that morphs into a sushi bar as one travels deeper into the restaurant. For the private dining rooms, the designer commissioned three L.A. artists to create artworks inspired by classic Hollywood.
