Kayne Prime Restaurant Review

: Before Kayne Prime opened in 2011, Nashville was stuck in chain steakhouse purgatory. Now, you may like chain steakhouses, and we’ve got nothing against them, but character and verve are not their specialties. Kayne Prime, on the other hand, is unique. The beef is carefully sourced and aged; the wine list is dynamic and delightful; the atmosphere is sophisticated, not stuffy. You can get your Wagyu here, yes, but you can also order a bone-in rib-eye or a progression of NY strip steak three ways. You can also opt for a wood-fired whole lobster or trout with a mustard crust if red meat doesn’t fit the bill. The sides, which are so often phoned in at lesser steakhouses, have cultivated a cult following in Nashville, especially the cream corn brûlée. The wine list includes several global heavy-hitters as well as a monster “Ultimate Steakhouse Wines” top ten that might just bust your budget. Desserts might include toasted banana bread with hot toffee sauce and mascarpone gelato. Or select a fine cheese from an extensive offering.
