What They’re Famous For
The steakhouse is aptly described as a contemporary steakhouse that provides the classic and chic steakhouse experience with world-class meats, particularly beef and lamb, and seafood as the stars of the menu. The meats are also accompanied by delicious sides and sauces that enhance their flavors, as well as a wide selection of the best wines from around the world.
Why Eat Here
The best steakhouse experience starts with the right ambiance – and at Prime Steakhouse, the ambiance is as classy as you can get! The dining room was designed by Michael De Santis, a world-renowned interior designer, who used Tiffany blue and deep chocolate brown as the color theme. The result is a modern dining room with an airy vibe that even the most pampered steakhouse guests will find to their liking.
The walls are decorated with commissioned artworks from the likes of Michael Gregory, George Deem, and Carlo Maria Mariani so there’s a sense of being surrounded by beauty. The water-themed canvas screen by Joseph Raffael adds to the stylish vibe, which many diners say is a far cry from the sterile quality of fast-food joints. The garden patio looks out into an equally beautiful and natural setting that makes for a romantic dinner.
Keep in mind that the Prime Steakhouse prices are more expensive than your run-of-the-mill steakhouse so be prepared for them. But when you consider the gourmet quality of the food and drinks plus the beautiful environment and outstanding service, these are worth paying for!
When you come to the steakhouse, you should be in your business casual attire. The top-notch steakhouse enforces a strict dress coder wherein athletic wear and shorts aren’t allowed. Besides, why would you want to look and feel sloppy in a put-together place?
However, kids under five years old aren’t allowed entry into the steakhouse. While this may seem discriminatory in nature, you have to understand that the adult clientele will not appreciate the antics of younger children in a fine dining establishment.
The food, of course, is still the #1 criterion used in determining whether a steakhouse lives up to its own hype – and the Prime Steakhouse definitely does! With world-class chefs on board, the steakhouse offers its guests yummy steak and seafood dishes, flavorful soups and salads, and desserts, which are all made from scratch in its kitchen. The meats are always juicy, succulent and tender as well as filled with the flavors from the salt, pepper and butter used in it cooking, too.
Start your dinner with appetizers that will whet your appetite for more of the delectable flavors that will soon follow. The chilled shellfish platter is an indulgent treat that can’t be passed up; it comes with mustard sauce, cocktail sauce, and mignonette. The oysters in their half shells served with mignonette and cocktail sauce, shrimp cocktail with fresh wasabi cocktail sauce, and seared Hudson Valley foie gras with lychee, black olives, and brioche will awaken your palate, too.
If you want a decadent appetizer, your best choice can be the Golden Osetra caviar served with traditional accompaniments because there’s nothing like caviar in a meal. Your other choices include ribbons of tuna, steak tartare and carpaccio, and bacon-wrapped shrimp.
The Prime Steakhouse menu may look limited in terms of the soups and salads but here’s the thing – quality will beat quantity in fine dining establishments. The Prime Onion Soup and the Pea Soup, which contains herbs and cheddar cheese puffs are all the soups you will ever want when dining here. The salads are more plentiful including Caesar salad, Market Tomatoes, Roasted Baby Beets, and Steamed Shrimp Salad, among others.
And then there’s the oh-so-lovely meats! You can choose from three types of sauces as accompaniments for your steaks, namely, béarnaise, soy-rice wine, and peppercorn. You may not even want any sauce since you want to enjoy your steak as is, but bear in mind that it will enhance the meatiness of the steaks like no sides can.
Your choices in the meats include the filet mignon; dry-aged bone-in rib eye; crackling tangy glazed short ribs served with snow peas, silky potatoes, and snow peas; herb-crusted Colorado lamb chops with Aleppo pepper sauce and chick peas; and New York strip with generous coating of peppercorn.
