DC will be home to yet another steakhouse chain when Ocean Prime opens near Metro Center. The Ohio-based operation from Cameron Mitchell Restaurants has 11 locations across the country, including Philadelphia and Beverly Hills, and announced plans to debut at 1341 G Street, Northwest by summer 2016.

The restaurant will occupy a large space in the Colorado Building—fit for roughly 280 guests—and serve an American menu of seafood and steaks. The house trick here: prime meat broiled at 1200 degrees. DC’s branch will also have a separate sushi counter. Stay tuned for more details.
