The Atlantic doesn't do small. The bustling 300-seat restaurant stretching along prime riverfront includes a cocktail bar, oyster bar and enormous open kitchen producing a startling number of seafood platters (towering stacks of lobster, sashimi, oysters, scallops, prawns and crab legs). Prices are big as well, both on the menu and the wine list, where mark-ups can be eye-watering. Sharp service helps ease the pain. So too does Donovan Cooke's presence in the kitchen, ensuring the quality and sustainability of the seafood and classic cooking. Oysters and caviar precede entrées such as a sauce-heavy seafood cocktail lifted with rockmelon and apple. Finfish come wood-grilled, roasted or steamed on the bone, while fillets include grilled tuna with an inky octopus ragoût. Serious steak and elaborate desserts, like the mango cassonade, round things out, though deeppocketed seafood fans will certainly be the happiest campers here.
