Ocean Prime to take over former Sambuca in Buckhead!

Ocean Prime recently signed a lease to take over the former Sambuca Jazz Cafe building at 3102 Piedmont Road in Buckhead.  

Founded in Columbus, Ohio by entrepreneur Cameron Mitchell, Ocean Prime was created to pair an upscale steakhouse with a fresh and modern seafood restaurant.  Using only the highest-quality meats and fish, Ocean Prime will offer such menu items as the Ginger Salmon, Filet Mignon and their famous Chilean Sea Bass in Truffled Champagne.  The chefs have selected award-winning wines to compliment each entree - for those late nighters, the bar chefs will be serving their signature hand-crafted cocktails and mixed drinks.   

This will be Mitchell's 9th Ocean Prime location with existing restaurants being in Detroit, Columbus, Miami, Orlando, Tampa, Dallas, Denver, and Phoenix. The Buckhead location will be 8,773 square feet and is expected to open in Summer 2011.  Amy Fingerhut with CB Richard Ellis represented the Landlord in the transaction, Harold Shumacher with The Shumacher Group represented Ocean Prime.
