Dean's Seafood Grill & Bar opens this week in Cary, replacing Rockwell's American Grill.
The new restaurant is the work of Dean Ogan, owner of Rocky Top Hospitality, a local restaurant group that got its start with the beloved Michael Dean's restaurant in North Raleigh. Ogan envisions his new restaurant as similar to Michael Dean's, which was known for its fresh seafood.
The menu at the new Dean's Seafood Grill & Bar includes a shrimp and scallop risotto, pistachio-encrusted salmon, pink peppercorn and coriander-encrusted tuna and pan-seared crab cakes. A portion of the menu will change each week to reflect the seasonal availability of fish and seafood. To see a menu, go HERE.
The restaurant is located at 1080 Darrington Dr., Cary. It is open 5-10 p.m. Mondays-Saturdays and 4-9 p.m. Sundays.
