Next : Seafood
Inspired by…. open seas, the endless potential of a cast line and the reward of well-earned catch; the refined perfection of an oyster’s pearl & the mysteries that inspire us to explore further… Next’s modernist expression of seafood is a journey through coastal cuisine and a tribute to it’s beauty.

A menu as inspiring and grand as the ocean’s bounty!
