THIS RESTAURANT IS NOW A PRIVATE EVENT SPACE 1705 Prime Catering & Events Restaurant Review

: Though the façade of 1705 Prime Catering & Events looks like a Home Depot interpretation of a Southern mansion, the interior is surprisingly elegant. Beyond the front door, you’ll find a tastefully and subtly decorated space with sleek light fixtures and large, comfortable leather chairs. The menu at this one-time restaurant, now a private events facility only, reflects the masculine “updated steakhouse” décor. As expected, USDA Prime dry-aged beef is the focus, but other dishes are just as rewarding. Saffron lobster risotto, diver scallops with pine smoked olive oil, and mint-rubbed rack of lamb are skillfully executed. A standout appetizer is the lump crab cake with yellow pepper coulis, and tempura fried lobster fingers. A glass wine vault holds over 300 different wines with an impressive selection of Napa Cabernets.
