50 Ocean updates menu

If you visit 50 Ocean, you may see some changes to the menu.

Executive chef Thomas Op’t Holt has added new options for brunch, lunch and dinner.

“We’ve kept the best of the best on our menu so our regulars can find their favorites, but we have sprinkled in new flavors,” chef Op’t Holt said.“We always want to surprise and delight customers with fresh tastes, and meet their needs by accommodating dietary choices and restrictions.”

New offerings include: Colossal Coconut Shrimp ($15). The crispy, giant shrimp come on a cress and fennel salad. Dipping the shellfish into the accompanying mango-chili aioli hits all the tropical notes. The new Filet Cyndy ($49) satisfies the quest for surf and turf. This 6-ounce, center-cut Revier Ranch tenderloin pairs with a butter-poached, cold-water lobster tail.

Guests looking for plant-centric items will find more choices at 50 Ocean. The Beyond Burger ($17) is 100 percent plant-based. Layered with oven-roasted tomatoes, sprouted lentils, and avocado mayo, and served on a warm toasted brioche. The Tempura Cauliflower ($9) with house-made kimchee is a starter.

For brunch, the Lemon Thyme Pancakes ($12) are a mingling of savory herbs, tangy citrus and sweet blueberry compote. The Cannoli Cream-Stuffed French Toast ($13)  has ricotta mascarpone, dark chocolate, cherry, pistachios and orange zest.

50 Ocean’s new cheese and charcuterie offers combinations of flavors and textures, with cheeses crafted from cow, goat, or sheep’s milk. Take your pick and pair with meats, including prosciutto, or salami made with fennel or from wild boar.

“Time and time again people come back because of our stunning ocean view,” said General Manager Mark DeAtley. “But also because we’re constantly reinventing the menus to appeal to the widespread tastes of today, while also staying true to our core.”

50 Ocean is located at 50 S. Ocean Blvd. For more information, call 561-278-3364 or visit 50ocean.com.
