THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Maxim Prime Restaurant Review: THIS ESTABLISHMENT IS CLOSED The stylish dining room seems suited to that of a seafood house, with its flat-screens a-swim with colored fish lazily plowing the waves back and forth in an endless loop. But no, this is a steakhouse operation, and yet one may come and dine entirely on fin selections, including sushi and crudo dishes. We like the slow-roasted bacon (from Benton's in Tennessee) and black truffles as a prelude to the steak. Our favorite is the bone-in filet mignon for two, a juicy 18-ounce morsel that is brought to the table deprived of its bone and sliced. The steaks are all à la carte, so one must order side dishes, which feed at least two per serving. They’re all pretty standard steakhouse fare, although some have been anointed with truffle oil to break them out of the block. But really, truffle oil on creamed corn? Creamed spinach is our favorite. Choose a sauce, including the classic hollandaise, but we like the more meat-friendly Barolo red wine sauce. If you're possessed of a lighter appetite, we endorse the braised short-rib sliders, served with horseradish and caper crème fraîche. The wine list is a let-down, with nothing really nice by the glass to go with a single diner's steak.
