The Asbury Ocean Club in Asbury Park, New Jersey, offers a luxurious retreat for travelers seeking a break from daily life. This Jersey shore destination combines modern sophistication with vintage charm, creating an elegant atmosphere.

Under the guidance of Executive Chef Kate Gagliardi, the Asbury Ocean Club’s dining experience is nothing short of exceptional. The menu, a carefully curated selection of contemporary American cuisine, showcases the finest ingredients and innovative techniques. From the tender, dry-aged ribeye steak to the succulent lamb ribs, each dish shines in its own way.

The seafood offerings are equally impressive, with the fluke, in particular, standing out as a highlight. Paired with crab stuffing, smoked gooseberry, and piquillo pepper, this delicate delight is elevated to new heights, its subtle flavors expertly balanced and enhanced. The meat dishes, too, are infused with a subtle nuance, with hints of fruits and vegetables adding a depth and complexity that is nothing short of remarkable.

But the Asbury Ocean Club’s allure extends far beyond its culinary prowess. The club’s versatile seating options cater to a range of tastes and preferences, from the intimate, Mid-Century modern drawing room to the picturesque pool and garden terrace. Whether you seek a cozy nook for a romantic evening or a sun-kissed spot to soak up the rays, this stylish establishment has something for everyone.

And then, of course, there is the pièce de résistance – the dessert. A classic brownie, elevated by the addition of peanut butter mousse and vanilla gelato, provides a rich, satisfying conclusion to a truly exceptional dining experience.

Accommodations are available at the adjacent Asbury Ocean Club Hotel, featuring 54 guest rooms and suites with plush bedding, sleek furnishings, and state-of-the-art amenities. The hotel offers a rooftop pool, fitness center, and spa services. It is the only hotel in New Jersey to receive the Forbes Five-Star Award.
