Ocean Prime's ahi tuna Rossini.

Ocean Prime has made one menu item planned for a legendary New York City abode available at its Tampa location 

Developed by the culinary team of the modern American restaurant chain, ahi tuna Rossini is the luxe offer in question. The dish is part of Ocean Prime’s Ultimate Surf and Turf dinner presentation at — you guessed it — the James Beard House on Dec. 7 and features seared foie gras, caramelized mushrooms, carrots, Brussels sprout leaves, and a truffle reduction.

Patrons who visit the International Plaza restaurant, which recently finished up a remodel that included a renovated terrace and private dining rooms, should expect to pay $50 for the specially made creation, on hand till Nov. 30. But the price tag seems like a steal compared to what the public pays for a seat at the land-and-sea Beard dinner: $210.

Ocean Prime suggests pairing its ahi tuna Rossini with Louis Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin, a pinot noir available by the glass for a limited time via the high-tech Coravin system (the fancy device that uses a needle to extract wine from a bottle without removing the cork).
