Fishing Expedition & Chef-Prepared Private Dinner

Hook, Line & Supper

After a day of fishing on a private charter, aboard the Bonita II out of Watch Hill, join us for an unforgettable interactive dining experience. Guests will be fully immersed in the experience of preparing their own freshly caught fish dinner with a private Ocean House Chef in the Center for Wine & Culinary Arts. Along the way, learn classic kitchen techniques including knife skills, pairing flavor profiles, and building a balanced meal, including appetizer, entrée, and dessert.

The Experience:

At the Counter:

With as much or as little hands on participation as guests wish, your private chef will filet and prepare the fish, delivered fresh from the dock. The fish will be portioned for your entrées, while a welcoming starter of ceviche or crudo is prepared for the party.

At the Table:

Enjoy an impressive shellfish tower to share, followed by an individually plated salad course, the main fish course, and a seasonal dessert.

To Book:

Available seasonally and based on availability. To reserve, please email
