New Executive Chef, New Menu at Atlantic Ocean Club

There's been a bit of trouble on the high seas since the Atlantic Ocean Club (AOC) opened in Delray earlier this year. After losing its executive chef, Jamie DeRosa, less than two months after they opened, the upscale restaurant has been a somewhat wayward ship until now.

Atlantic Ocean Club recently put

Lisa Odom, formerly executive chef at Galanga in West Palm, at the helm

naming her as its new executive chef. In addition to a new chef, the

restaurant also has a brand new menu. Some of the new additions on the

menu, like the AOC Cheeseburger and Florida BBQ Ribs are head-scratchers

and seem incongruous with the restaurant's elegant dining

concept. Other new dishes, such as the Pan Seared Halibut and Diver

Scallops with Sunchoke Puree help to steer AOC back on course, offering

guests something more other than pricey bar food in a luminous setting.

Hopefully with a new chef and a new menu there will be nothing but calm

waters and smooth sailing ahead for the Atlantic Ocean Club!
