The last time CraveDFW featured Ocean Prime we showcased the huge Red King Crab legs that had just been flown in from Bristol Bay. As this was over two years ago, we thought it was time to head back and see how it’s keeping up with all the competing seafood spots that have opened in Dallas since that report.

Ocean Prime Uptown is one of sixteen locations across the states and boasts a menu that features items like sushi and poke, indulgent seafood entrees, prime steaks, desserts, signature cocktails, and a Wine Spectator-honored wine list.

Ebb & Flow Expands to Shops at Legacy

Ebb & Flow opened in Deep Ellum in the fall of 2019, bringing dinner, drinks and brunch to the lively dining and nightlife district. Now, the concept is opening a new location in another hotspot—the Shops at Legacy in Plano—with the doors slated to open in early March.

Ebb & Flow is owned and operated by Dallas Hale (Shell Shack, Sushi Marquee) and his brother, Eric Bradford. Hale has established himself as a successful restaurateur, and Bradford worked in the music scene for a decade, managing top-tier venues like the Bomb Factory and Trees, before partnering with his brother to open Ebb & Flow. The restaurant is a culmination of their experiences, blending good food, drinks and music into one fun-loving space.
