Wine Enthusiast editors asked America's 100 Best Wine Restaurants of 2012 "which dish would start a riot if it was taken off the menu?" Their riot-worthy dish is… "The taro-wrapped dorade with baby bok choy, Chinese long beans, peanuts and coconut-cilantro curry is a standout on the menu."

Perfect Pairing
“The perfect wine is always Champagne!” says Wine Director Pedro Goncalves. “Paired with an East Coast oyster, it’s a marriage made in heaven.” He also suggests Chablis and Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc.

Wine Events
Oceana offers monthly themed and tailor-made wine pairings, such as a Sicilian tasting menu and herb-inspired tastings, as well as private wine-focused dinners.
