Aphotic, from the Greek (ἀ- + φῶς), meaning “without light,” makes reference to the layer of the ocean that receives less than 1% of sunlight (1000 meters in depth), comprising the majority of the world’s open ocean. Aphotic Restaurant was born out of necessity. Chef Peter Hemsley set out to establish a best-practice seafood restaurant with transparency and traceability as core objectives, all while delivering unparalleled quality and creative intrigue for the benefit of our guests.
Enjoy our prix fixe Chef’s menu curated by Chef PETER HEMSLEY with the option of adding passed canapés and other luxury supplements such as reserve caviar, spiny lobster, urchin, and box crab. Aphotic is a best practice seafood restaurant. Our cuisine is hyper-focused around sustainably sourced ingredients and changes with the season. We do our best to accommodate all dietary restrictions and allergies. That said, we are unable to provide non-seafood protein such as beef, chicken, etc. on our menu or exclude alliums from our dishes.
