Michael Dominick's Lincoln Avenue Prime Steakhouse Restaurant Review: The former owners of Mastro's Steakhouses know how to roll out the glitz, as evidenced by this six-million-dollar palace boasting six-foot crystal chandeliers, a mohair-upholstered ceiling, a decorative pool in the dining room and a retractable roof. Happily, the kitchen puts the grand stuff on the table, too. The star is the Prime, wet-aged steaks, broiled and sizzling with butter, but seafood, like the lobster and Chilean sea bass, also shines. You know the drill: sides are extra, with cream- and butter-rich possibilities like macaroni and cheese, the signature au gratin potatoes, creamed spinach and baked potatoes nearly the size of footballs. How a diner can end up with room for dessert is anyone's guess, but the warm butter cake drenched with caramel is worth the indulgence. As expected, the staff is knowledgeable in regard to the meat cuts and pricey, mostly California wine list. But be sure to put the bar to the test as well, especially since the tenders realize that any Bulleit Manhattan drink that costs $19 better be perfect.
