Ocean 2000: The New Spot in the Pelican Grand

We would bet that at least 75 percent of our visitors come to South Florida for the beach. Aside from the beautiful people, it's probably our best asset. That being said, there aren't too many hotels or restaurants situated directly on the beach.

And then there's the Pelican Grand Hotel. While it did take on a new executive chef, Todd Lough, last spring, the property recently completely overhauled its onsite restaurant: Ocean 2000.

The newly remodeled interior was revealed to the public on January 21. Sleek white booths, modern lighting, and oceanic-inspired prints and decorations create a modern beachy feel. While the view has always been stunning, the contemporary space has strayed away from the touristy hotel restaurant feel.

To bring the cuisine up to date, Executive Chef Todd Lough has worked with the corporate team to introduce more regional and seasonal menu to the spot. Being that it is an oceanside restaurant, fresh fish and seafood dishes make up a large portion of the menu. Lough and his team work to source local products, as much as possible.
